Your lawn needs to breathe just like you do. However, when the soil is compacted, it won’t allow water, fertilizer and oxygen to percolate deep into the soil. Likewise, the soil is not able to expel carbon dioxide. Another key to a healthy lawn involves healthy soil—and soil is at its healthiest when it can deeply absorb oxygen, water and nutrients and expel carbon dioxide.
Hartney Greymont’s lawn aeration service helps relieve soil compaction, allowing your lawn to function more efficiently by facilitating these natural processes. The best value comes when aeration is paired with a top-dressing of compost which replenishes nutrients while adding microorganisms back into the soil.
