SPRING is the time to Aerate!

Save money, conserve water, and encourage a healthy lawn

If you live in Colorado, you know that we have clay soils that compact easily. Compacted soils discourage nutrients, water and air from reaching the roots of your grass plant. Aeration should be as big a part of your lawn care as watering or fertilizing.

So be sure to aerate at least once a year, and now is the time!

How aeration helps your lawn and your budget:

  • An aerated lawn absorbs nutrients, air and water better.
  • Fertilizers are more effective, so no need to over-fertilize.
  • Less water is needed because the water is reaching the root structure, rather than running off or sitting on top of the soil.
  • Grass that is aerated fights off pests and disease better, thereby reducing the need for pesticides and herbicides.

A great lawn care strategy is to follow aeration with an application of fertilizer. The aeration holes enable better penetration of the fertilizer to the roots of your lawn. Give us a call and let us help you keep a beautiful lawn all season long!
