What is core aeration and how does it benefit my lawn?
Core aeration opens up your soil to water, air, water, nutrients, and more. It’s extremely common that you’ll see core aeration being performed here in Augusta, GA, and Columbia, SC, during late September or even October, once grass seed is being spread. However, you may see core aeration being performed in the springtime, as well. It truly depends on the overall and intended purpose. If your lawn is extremely compacted, which is common with a soil that’s heavily clay, core aeration can help loosen up the soil, again, allowing for more water and nutrient saturation. If your lawn is too compacted, it will have restricted access to both water and essential nutrients.
In addition to increasing the access to water and nutrients that your lawn requires, core aeration can also assist in reducing diseases and can even help to reduce water runoff, especially if your home is on a hill, and may also assist in your lawn being more heat and drought-tolerant. While this isn’t always the case, these are just a few of the benefits of core aeration for your Augusta, GA, or Columbia, SC, lawn.
When should I have my lawn aerated?
Again, the most common time of the year to aerate is when you’re putting down new grass seed, for all the reasons mentioned above. In short, it’s beneficial to your grass seed sprouting and delivering the needed water, air, and nutrients that your new grass seed so desperately needs in the beginning. Also, it will further assist in keeping your new grass seed from running off due to rain or from your irrigation system running for extended durations.
However, with so many different lawn types here in Augusta, GA, and Columbia, SC, we recommend requesting a free consultation from TurfMasters. It’s important to remember that we treat each lawn uniquely, essentially creating a custom-tailored lawn care program for your lawn and your lawn alone. That’s why we are so successful; unlike other big named companies, we focus on our customers’ lawns in an extremely detailed manner. There is no, and never will be, any “cookie cutter” program for our customers’ lawns. So, in short, the answer to “when should I have my lawn aerated?” may be a different answer from one customer to another. While your lawn may benefit from both a spring and fall aeration, that’s not always the case and our highly-trained technicians will inform you as to what is best for your lawn.
Does TurfMasters make sure to avoid sprinkler heads when aerating my lawn?
Yes! Prior to performing any core aeration on your lawn, our technicians will walk through your lawn and locate each and every sprinkler head and mark it with a temporary flag. This will allow us to easily see where your even most hidden sprinkler heads are and assist in avoiding them completely. The last thing you want is for a core aeration and overseeding to turn into a sprinkler head replacement project. That’s why we always pay attention to the details, no matter how small.
