Did you know a layer of compacted soil just 1/4 to 1/2 inches thick, can make a significant difference in the health and beauty of your lawn?

AERATION is important at all times of the year, but immediately after the summer months it becomes even more so!

Many domestic lawns become compacted over summer and this needs to be addressed if healthy grass growth is to be achieved.

Managing the air and moisture balance of the soil is vital to grass growth. Aeration is the key to achieving this balance, by supporting moisture and nutrients to reach the roots of the grass plant. While many lawns may already have been aerated in the spring, it cannot be overstated the importance of removing compaction at the end of the summer months. We need to start the process to assist grass recovery and enable strong growth throughout the autumn period.

Aeration acts to:

> Eliminate soil compaction

> Increase air and moisture penetration into the soil

> Improve root structure of the grass plant

> Increases moisture and nutrient uptake in the grass plant

> Supports resilience to common diseases, such as Red Thread

> Reduces water runoff and puddling on paths and patios
