The secret to a beautiful lawn
For years, professional golf course greens keepers have known that the secret to a beautiful, dense turf is to aerate their course two or three times each year to allow the healthy grassroots to thrive.
This mechanical process is designed to reduce soil compaction, allowing more oxygen and nutrients to get into the root system of the plant. Compaction occurs primarily on the surface of the soil and can range from ¼ in to ½ in deep, keeping water, nutrients and other crucial factors out of the soil. Aerating machines pull plugs from the turf area, creating large pores that will allow moisture and nutrients to move freely through the soil layers.
