Ken’s Quick Tip: Why You Should Aerate Your Lawn

Lawn aeration is an extremely simple process that anyone can do to their lawn.  Whether you want to do it yourself or hire Village Green boils down to the amount of time you want to invest punching thousands of smalls holes in your turf.  If you would like for us to do it for you, schedule by September 2 and we will aerate your lawn at for $20 of the cost.  You can contact us at 972-495-6990 or [email protected] for the exact price for your lawn.

The reason it is so important in North Texas is because of our infamous clay soil which are made up of tiny particles that compact over time.  The longer you go without aerating your lawn the more they compact.  This is bad for your lawn because it makes it hard for it to take in water, oxygen, and fertilizer (major components if you want a healthy lawn.)  If you have a lot of traffic on your lawn, whether it be people or pets, the problem increases which is why golf courses aerate their greens and fairways several times a year.

As a homeowner, you don’t need to go that far, but it is a wise investment to aerate your lawn once a year.  Once you poke thousands of holes in your lawn, you are creating little cups that will collect water, oxygen and fertilizer.  These components will be able to penetrate deep into your soil down to the root system of your grass, which will lead to a healthier lawn.

Which is why I recommend lawn aeration to our customers.  It makes sense.  Financially and environmentally, and better yet, the end result will be a much healthier and more beautiful lawn when you combine aeration with your ongoing lawn maintenance program.
