Why aerate your lawn?
Pimp my Lawn is delighted to introduce our new Coring/Aerating Service for all domestic and commercial lawns.
For a beautiful healthy lawn you need to get air, water and nutrients down
through the thatch and soil and into the root zone. Our Aerator
machines make this possible.
Aerators punch holes through the turf and thatch and into the soil to reduce compaction and allow healthy circulation of air, water and nutirents.
When and how often should I aerate my lawn?
Most lawns will benefit from annual aeration, Heavily used lawns, or those growing on heavy clay or subsoil, may need aerating more frequenctly.
Aeration is best carried out when lawns are under less stress so Autumn (March - June) and Spring (August- November) months are ideal as the lawns are still actively growing to allow to fill in the open spaces where the soil plugs have been removed.
What will I see after aeration?
Your lawn will be covered with small soil plugs which will naturally break down and disappear inot the lawn after approx 21 days.
What are the long terms benefits?
Aeration has a long list of benefits:
- Enhancing water absorption
- Improving Fertiliser effectiveness
- Reducing water runoff and puddling
- Imporving turf resilience
- Enhancing heat and drought stress tolerance
- Improving overall air exchange
