Deep Core Aeration
Deep core aeration services help heavily used and lawns growing on compacted soils by improving the depth and extent of turf grass rooting, allowing for better water uptake, enhancing the effects of fertilizer and speeding up thatch breakdown. Seasons360 provide Deep Core Aeration in Edmonton, Alberta and surrounding areas.
Over time your lawn may get compacted for a variety of reasons including but not limited to excessive foot traffic, pet traffic or water pooling in certain areas. Lawns that are exposed to such stressors may have increased soil density which reduces the large air spaces where roots may readily grow therefore, limiting overall growth, color and shine. Deep core aeration can help with this concern; however, the timing of the service depends on the type of grass in your lawn. For cool-season grasses it is better to aerate in the spring and fall whereas for warm-season grasses spring to summer aeration is ideal. Timing is critical to ensure that your grass is active and growing.
Deep core aeration provides the following benefits to your lawn:
- Enhanced soil and water uptake.
- Improved fertilizer uptake and effect.
- Reduced water runoff.
- Improved turf grass rooting.
- Reduced soil compaction.
- Enhanced heat and drought stress tolerance.
- Enhanced thatch breakdown.
Additionally, it is ideal to combine deep core aeration with power raking to ensure minimal visibility of the aeration plugs as power raking fragments the majority of these plugs.
