Early Fall provides a window of opportunity for North Eastern Tree, Shrub, & Lawn Care’s lawn care experts to improve the health and density of your lawn. Cooling temps allow for the growth of new turfgrass at a time in the season when competition from weeds is less fierce.
Effectively filling in bare spots and improving the diversity of turf types in your lawn is possible when working with your arborist at North Eastern Tree, Shrub, & Lawn Care who takes into consideration the growth cycles of the turf you want and weeds you don’t.
Almost any lawn can benefit from aeration when it’s timed well and done properly. Grass roots need air, water and nutrients to grow thick, deep and healthy. Core aeration creates small holes down into the soil to alleviate compaction so oxygen, water and nutrients can reach grass roots.
Lawns in our area typically have a combination of heavy soil that are especially susceptible to compaction. Compacted soil restricts the movement of oxygen, water and nutrients depriving lawn grasses of their basic needs making the lawn vulnerable to drought, disease and insect damage in stressed conditions.
Aerating your lawn removes small cores of soil from the turf, allowing air, water, and nutrients to penetrate the soil. By creating an environment where air and water can move freely within the soil, we give beneficial, nutrient-producing microorganisms the opportunity to thrive. The result is a more self-sustaining environment that supports the growth of healthy grass from the roots up. Core aeration is a great benefit to any lawn care program, but it is an especially important supplement for our Organic Based and Pure Organic lawn care programs.
The best time to aerate in our area is early fall or early spring.
