Core Aeration
Core Aeration involves perforating the soil with small holes

to allow air, water and nutrients to better reach the root

system. This helps the roots grow deeply and produces a

stronger, more vigorous lawn.

The main reason for aerating is to alleviate soil compaction.

Compacted soils have too many solid particles in a certain

volume or space, which prevents proper circulation of air, water and nutrients within the soil.

The best time for aeration is during the spring or fall when the cooler temperatures with increased precipitation allows for larger core plugs to be pulled from the ground .
