Our Company Provides Core Aeration to Properties in & Around Macungie, East Greenville, & Fogelsville, PA
Core aeration will give your roots direct access to essential nutrients.
Heavy foot traffic and large machinery like lawnmowers are two common causes of soil compaction. Almost every lawn deals with this issue even if the property owner is not aware of it. Some signs of soil compaction include patchy grass, pooling water in low areas, and stunted plant growth.
So, what do you do when you have compacted soil? Schedule our core aeration service right away! Core aeration will loosen up your soil and give your roots better access to essential nutrients, sunlight, and water as well as many additional benefits for both your lawn and your wallet. Because the Macungie, East Greenville and Fogelsville, PA areas have cool-season grass types, we always perform core aeration in the fall. This is when your grass is at its strongest point and will benefit most from this service.
What is core aeration?
Core aeration refers to the removal of soil "cores". Our company will use a professional-grade aerator machine to travel over your grass and remove tiny, 3-inch sections of your soil. Through these holes, essential nutrients, water, and sunlight will have direct access to your roots. It will also significantly increase the effectiveness of fertilizer treatments. This natural process will give your grass everything it needs to grow much greener, stronger, and thicker than before.
Along with every core aeration service, our crew will also spread disease-resistant grass seeds throughout your lawn. These extra seeds will fall into those newly created holes in your soil and immediately gain direct soil contact, drastically increasing their chances of germinating. Soon after our team visits your property, you will begin to see your patchy, weak lawn turning into the lawn you have always dreamed of.
When should you schedule core aeration?
The lawns in the Macungie, PA area have cool-season grass. This means that your grass thrives in the cooler seasons and needs a little bit of extra care in the hot summer weather. Fall and spring are the times of the year when your cool-season grass is more equipped to handle stress. Although your grass is strong in the spring, we avoid aerating at this time because this is when your turf is recovering and bouncing back from winter dormancy. We make sure to always core aerate your lawn during the fall season when it is at its peak of strength and tolerance.
We suggest aerating your lawn annually to protect it from soil compaction.
Core Aeration Does More Than Just Loosen Your Soil
Along with loosening your compacted soil, core aeration will also:
- Improve water penetration and draining, allowing you to water your lawn less and have it soak up more.
- Boost watering efficacy. Your lawn will absorb water more efficiently, thus reducing your water bill.
- Improve fertilizer uptake. Less fertilizer, better results!
