Aeration for New Hampshire Lawns
NH Lawn Care Maintenance That Helps Your Roots Thrive
Aeration has a number of benefits for your NH lawn and should be done annually to keep your grass green and healthy. Aeration is just punching holes into your grass that allows water and other nutrients to get down to the roots of your lawn. Grass gets compacted during the year or it starts to develop a thick thatch. Thatches that are over an inch deep effectively seals your lawn from the very things that keeps it alive, like water and air. Thick layers of thatch are also breeding grounds for bugs, grubs, and grass killing diseases. Aeration is a simple way to let water, air, and nutrients get into the root system, making the roots go deeper and improving the overall health of your lawn.
Time to Fertilize?
Fertilizing right after aeration is a good idea, fertilizer can more easily penetrate the roots and promote the good health of your grass.
