This is when the soil becomes compressed which will restrict the passage of oxygen to the grass plants rootzone. Oxygen is very important as it allows the natural microbes to flourish and keep the soil healthy. Compaction also limits the lawns’ ability to drain away surface water and can affect root growth.
Aeration is the answer!
By using a professional turf aerator; tines will be driven down into the upper soil surface area of the lawn creating fissures. This allows the stale carbon dioxide to escape and for the ingress of fresh oxygen, moisture and nutrients to where it is most needed, stimulating young root growth and a healthy soil environment.
