Now is the time to have your Aerating and overseeding scheduled for your fescue lawns!
Health and beauty are root deep. Over time, the soil beneath your lawn becomes compacted which impedes root growth.
Compact soil prevents grass from establishing a healthy root system and keeps air, water and fertilizer from reaching the roots. Common cause of compation include:
What will I see after aeration?
You will see small soil plugs which will naturally break down and disappear into the lawn over the course of the next several weeks depending on weather and environment.
What are the long-term benefits?
Core aeration can help make your lawn healthier and reduce its maintenance requirements through these means.:
Immediately after aeration, your lawn will be dotted with small plugs pulled from the soil. Within a few weeks, they should break apart and disappear back into the lawn.
About 7 to 10 days after aeration, the aerification holes will be filled with white, actively growin groots - a sign that the turfgrass is receiving additional oxygen, moisture and nutrients from the soil.
On compacted soils and on lawns with slopes, you should see an immediate difference in water puddling and runoff after irrigation or rainfall. After aeration your lawn should be able to go longer between watering without showing signs of wilt. With repeated aerations over time, your lawn will show enhanced heat and drought stress tolerance. Remember, most lawns benefit from annual aeration.
