When the leaves start falling and the weather gets cooler here in New Jersey, the last thing you want to do is sacrifice quality time with the family to get your yard in shape. However, fall is prime time to add nutrients to your lawn and prep your greenscapes for the next year, starting with fall aeration.
Aeration is a solid start to rejuvenating the roots of your grass, enhancing the look of your exterior areas, and making your lawn the envy of the neighborhood. Interested in learning more about the benefits? Keep reading:
Throughout the year, and especially during those warm New Jersey summers, your soil gets compacted, ultimately limiting the oxygen exposure. Aeration helps to loosen up the soil so that nutrients can reach the roots of your grass.
Aeration and coring allow the soil to expand and relax. The added space stemming from the aeration process puts more soil oxygen into the profile, in addition to natural rainwater, ultimately promoting deeper rooting of your grass.
Whether the New Jersey area is getting plenty of rainfall or enduring a drought, aeration allows your grass to remain green. Organic matter applied to the grass is quickly absorbed after aeration, which helps support microbial life in the ground.
Aeration, when combined with overseeding, can help to turn your grass around if you have brown spots or areas of dead grass. With regular watering after the process, you’ll see that your grass is ready to impress by the time spring rolls around.
