You may have heard from a friend or a lawn care professional that fall is the ideal time of year to aerate your lawn. However, you’re skeptical about whether aeration is really important. We at Lawn Plus LLC want to give you just a few reasons why you may want to consider aeration.

1. Allow roots to grow deeper.

One of the best ways to help your lawn thrive even during the winter months is to aerate it. Aeration gives the roots space to reach down further into the ground, making your lawn more tolerant to harsh winter weather in Ohio.

2. Remove lawn thatch.

Lawn thatch is the layer of dead grass and other organic materials that get stuck in between your grass and the soil. This thatch keeps important nutrients from getting to your grass’s roots. In order to get rid of lawn thatch, aeration is necessary.

3. Keep nutrients getting to your grass’s roots.

Aeration is the process of removing small plugs of soil from your lawn. This lawn care treatment not only allows your lawn to “breathe,” but also makes many small gateways for nutrients to get to your lawn’s root system. That way, these nutrients—along with water and oxygen—can get beneath the surface. Most lawn care professionals recommend lawn aeration once a year during the fall months.
