Don't Skip This Step If You Want A Lush Lawn This Spring
If you want a lush lawn by spring, lawn care experts recommend aerating your yard in the fall. Aeration involves making small holes in the soil before seeding and fertilizing.
This practice helps air, water, and nutrients penetrate the grass roots better and allows seed and fertilizer to settle into the aeration holes, thus helping in germination.
Moreover, aeration combats soil compaction, increases water infiltration, and improves oxygen flow to the roots, setting the stage for strong and vibrant grass growth come spring.
To determine if your lawn needs aeration, try inserting a screwdriver into a compacted or patchy area while it is moist. Difficulty in doing so indicates it is time to aerate.
