Benefits of Aeration and Seeding
As lawns age or sustain heavy use from play, sports activities, pets, vehicle traffic and parking, soil compaction can result. Soil compacting forces are most severe in poorly drained or wet sites. Compaction greatly reduces the pore space within the soil that would normally hold air. Roots require oxygen to grow and absorb nutrients and water. Compaction reduces total pore space and the amount of air within the soil. It has negative impact on nutrient uptake and water infiltration, in addition to being a physical barrier to root growth. This results in poor top growth and lawn deterioration.
Increase the activity of soil microorganisms that decompose thatch.
Increase water, nutrient and oxygen movement into soil
Improve rooting of turfgrass
Help prevent fertilizer and pesticide run-off from overly compacted areas.
Enhance infiltration of rainfall or irrigation
