Now is the time to think about lawn aeration . As strange as that may sound, even that grass and soil in the ground needs to breathe, and that’s why lawn aeration in Beavercreek is so important. But, what does this even mean? Well, it is the process of puncturing holes through the soil with a lawn aerator to allow suitable and effective flow of air, water, and various other nutrients. This helps significantly reduce the buildup of thatch, improves the soil structure, and helps create growth pockets for new roots.
While it is not a process that is done frequently, for most lawns an annual aeration is fitting, it is something that should not be overlooked. It’s very easy for your lawn to dry up and become unhealthy if nutrients aren’t able to circulate through the soil correctly. Compacted soil is a nightmare for your lawn, as it blocks up any pores and doesn’t allow the roots of your lawn to get what they need. Aeration of your lawn can break up soil layering to let everything flow deeply and to the roots, where the most care is necessary.
The health of your lawn depends upon its ability to soak up all the nutrients, and not just the ones from lawn care. Oxygen and rain can do nothing for your lawn’s health if there’s no way for them to be distributed through the soil. While maintaining your lawn is important, beneficial methods such as simply mowing can take a toll and end up doing damage over time if your lawn isn’t properly aerated.

Dries out easily and has a spongy feel. This might mean your lawn has an excessive thatch problem. Take a shovel and remove a slice of lawn about four inches deep. If the thatch layer is greater than one-half inch, aeration is recommended.
