Benefits of Aeration and Leaves Removal
Knowing that aeration of the lawn tends to be very important in rejuvenating its growth. Where one aerates a garden, he or she tends to control thatch, create growth pockets for new roots as well as improve soil structure allowing easy penetration of the new roots. The aerator also tend to open a way for both the water as well as fertilizer allowing even better growth of the lawn. In case the soil in the lawn is clay soil, one would need to make sure that he or she does the aeration more often. One may also need to do aeration where the lawn has a thatch buildup or even any other lawn that has thickened up.
For the best removal of small cores from the lawn, one would need to hire a company with good aerator machines. One would, however, need to note that the small cores tend to get back to the soil after a number of rainfalls which tend to mix with the thatch. The holes created by the aerator tend to not only hold water but also fertilizer. The holes created would allow the turf roots to grow towards the holes. Among other things the holes does include releasing pressure built on the soil. Pressure release allows water easy penetration as well as oxygen making the lawn even healthier.
It is essential to note that thatch in the lawn tends to behave like a thatched roof on matters to do with allowing water percolate into the lawn root system. The thatch not only prevents water from entering into the soil but also tend to prevent nutrients as well. One may also incur a heavy cost on renovation where he or she allows too much thatch. One would also need to know that aeration also tend to contribute in decomposition something which leads to more fertile soils. As a result, it would be modest for one to ensure that aeration is done at least once in every year.
Having a lawn free of leaves is yet another thing one would need to ensure. It would therefore be essential for one to hire a company that not only does aeration but also does leaves collection. It would also be essential to ensure that the leaves on the lawn are cleared to allow the lawn to have access to the sunlight. One as a result would need to make sure that the company he or she hires not only does aeration but also gets rid of all the leaves in the lawn. Snow also tend to be very destructive to the lawn. One would be lucky to find a company with machinery capable of handling snow, aeration as well as leaves removal.
