Lawn Aeration Company
Typically, your Lawn may not look the greatest in Florida after winter. Your Lawn may have suffered winter stress, fungus lesions, and frost damage. Even with a regular lawn spray service after winter, Florida Lawns can take some time to respond until the soil temperatures increase and gradually match the ambient temperature outside.
An aeration service is a key to kickstarting the Lawn into a smooth transition in the right direction. All lawns over the years have experienced heavy rain, foot traffic in some locations, and the natural shifting of soil and roots. When this occurs, the soil becomes compacted and reduces the oxygen levels in the ground. When this happens, it limits the air reaching the roots, inhibiting the amount of carbon dioxide the Lawn can release. A byproduct of this is a less than stellar appearance of the Lawn.
What is a Lawn Aeration?
A Lawn Aeration process mechanically removes small plugs of soil using a core aerator from the Lawn. This service aims to better airflow around the Lawn's roots, enabling nutrients from your "Imperial Green" lawn spray program and rainfall to utilize the Lawn more effectively. The ultimate result is a healthier and more vigorous lawn.
Why You Should Aerate Your Lawn
Aeration is an essential service to a healthy, thriving lawn. With the removal of the compacted soil, the Lawn has more potential for expedited growth space to grow to strengthen the root system. An Aeration Service also helps remove thatch, which, when overgrown, can inhibit fertilizer uptake, nutrients, and water from penetrating the soil. A Lawn Aeration Service will also promote a greener lawn that is thicker, healthier, and has a more robust root system. Yards with more beneficial root systems result in less weed growth competing for nutrients, less stress from heat, less damage during drought, and less prone to Chinch Bugs and Lawn destroying insects.
Lawn Aeration Frequency & Recommendations
Timing is vital when determining the effectiveness of a Lawn Aeration Service. Here in Florida, with warmer grass types such as St. Augustine, Bermuda, and Bahia, we recommend this service be performed between April and July for the warmer months and between September and December in our Location of Florida for the typical Fall application. If you are in a northern region, it is not advised to make the Fall application due to Lawn's early dormancy. Imperial Pest Prevention recommends having the Lawn aerated twice a year and our standard Lawn Spray program.
