Core Aeration is the process of making thousands of small holes in the turf. Soil microbes, like all living things, need air, food, and water in order to function. These holes allow fertilizer, water, and air to reach the root zone quicker, resulting in new growth and increased root development. Opening up the soil helps reduce thatch build up and soil compaction (which can contribute to disease)-- allowing your lawn to breathe, which reduces disease and insect pests.
All grass types (Bermuda, Zoysia, Centipede, St. Augustine, and Fescue) benefit from this most important cultural practice for improving and maintaining the health of turn. Annual or semi-annual aeration is strongly advised for all lawns on heavy clay soils, those with a thatch buildup, and any other lawn that may need to be thickened up.
