Early spring is an excellent time to give home lawns a jump-start with aeration and fertility.
When caring for your lawn and trying to keep it ‘weed-free’ the saying that “the best defense is a good offense” holds true. Weeds are opportunistic and invade weakened lawns, thus the best weapon to fight weeds is a dense, healthy stand of grass.
Benefits of lawn aeration
Lawn aeration will reduce soil compaction, and open the soil surface allowing air, water and nutrient to enter the root-zone, creating a better root mass.
Increasing root mass at this time of the year greatly improves the chances of cool-season grasses to reduce stress and survive the heat and drought of summer.
Cool-season grasses, such as bluegrass, fescue and rye grass grow favorably during the cooler weather of spring and fall.
Improving air, water and nutrient movement through the soil during this time significantly increases the quality of the grass.
Applications of fertilizer after aeration will move nutrients immediately into the root-zone of your lawn. This practice has shown excellent results in the density and color of cool-season turf grasses in preparation for summer stress.
Our lawn aeration service area covers the following neighborhoods: Burlingame, Belmont, San Carlos, Redwood City, Menlo Park, Palo Alto, Los Altos, Portola Valley, Woodside plus areas in between.
