Allowing air, water and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots
Aeration involves perforating the soil with small holes to allow air, water and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots. This helps the roots grow deeply and produce a stronger, more vigorous lawn. Aeration and spiking can also split the roots of the grass, encouraging new offshoots to grow and in turn, will help thicken your lawn. The main reason for aerating is to alleviate soil compaction. Compacted soils have too many solid particles in a certain volume or space, which prevents proper circulation of air, water and nutrients within the soil. Aeration will improve drainage and help your lawn become more drought resistant.
The best time for aeration is during the growing season, when the grass can heal. Machinery is very expensive to hire and also heavy to manoeuvre, we can provide this service and do a difficult job properly.Ideally Vibrant Lawn Care aerate the lawn in the spring and autumn.
