Aeration

Quality Lawn Care Services Idaho Falls

To maintain your lawn’s health and appearance, ample sunlight and nutrients are essential. Proper lawn maintenance necessitates feeding, watering, and regular mowing. However, if your lawn’s soil becomes heavily compacted, crucial energy and nutrition fail to reach it, hindering your lawn’s thriving potential.

Aeration actively perforates your lawn’s soil, facilitating better water, air, and nutrient penetration. In Idaho Falls, lawn aeration’s primary objective is to alleviate compacted soil, which restricts water and air circulation, depriving your lawn of vital nutrients. It also involves eliminating thatch—overly matted and clumped grass—allowing your lawn to breathe freely. Our Idaho Falls aeration services additionally promote deeper root growth for a robust, more vibrant lawn.

Through core aeration, grass roots breathe better amid thatch buildup, while soil plugs persist, breaking down to nourish loose soil across the lawn.

Over time, any lawn will require aeration to achieve its full potential. You may require Idaho Falls lawn aeration if:

  • Your lawn dries out and turns brown too easily, which is a good indicator of excess thatch. A thatch layer that is thicker than one-half inch requires immediate dethatching and aeration.

  • Your lawn looks patchy, thin, and bare.

  • Water puddles on the lawn after it rains.

  • It is difficult to stick a pencil or screwdriver into the soil surface.

  • Vehicles drive over your lawn excessively, or it is otherwise heavily used. This is a large contributor to soil compaction.

  • Your lawn was established with sod, which often leads to heavily compacted soil. Laying sod necessarily involves soil layering, as the soil underneath the sod is laid on top of the pre-existing soil on your property. Aeration will help loosen up this heavy clay soil.

Idaho Falls aeration works best when the soil is moist, so we recommend watering your lawn consistently a day or two prior to having it aerated. However, it is also important not to over-water it. A lawn that is too wet will cause just as many problems as a lawn that is too dry.

Another thing to consider is that one of the best times for lawn fertilization in Idaho Falls is just after lawn aeration. This is another service that we provide and would be a wise investment proceeding our aeration services.

Our technicians know how to properly aerate your lawn and bring it back to its full potential. When you hire New Leaf Landscape Design & Maintenance, you can expect to have a better looking lawn in no time. While the aeration process itself may only take a two-three hours, results may take up to a couple of weeks depending on the size of your lawn and the consistency of maintenance thereafter.
