Turf Aeration

How Does Turf Aeration Work?

Aerating your turf begins by utilizing turf aeration machines. These pieces of equipment poke small holes evenly throughout your turf so that water, oxygen, and other nutrients can enter through. This allows them to reach the root system of the turf. Many different turf aerator models feature adjustable heights that allow them to dig deeper or more shallow holes.

Depending on your preference, as well as the size of the area you’re aerating, your turf aeration equipment can be pulled by hand or towed by tractors and other similar vehicles.

Benefits Provided By Turf Aeration

Reduced Water Runoff

When your turf has restricted access to water, it can create water runoff on the surface of the turf. Rather than going into the soil and entering the turf or grass roots, the water is blocked from entering deep layers of the soil, causing it to pool on the surface. Turf aeration provides your turf with much easier access to water, reducing the overall water runoff.

Healthier Turf

Water, oxygen, and nutrients are all crucial in helping your turf shine. Providing your turf with easier access to these valuable properties will improve the overall health of your turf, resulting in beautiful and luscious landscapes for years to come.

Less Compact Soil

Soil that is too compact will also restrict your turf from water, oxygen, and nutrients. The denser the soil, the less air that can flow freely through the soil, resulting in carbon dioxide buildup. Turf aeration solutions decrease the overall compaction and allow for greater airflow and access to nutrients.

Easier Thatch Management

Regularly performing core aeration can help to prevent thatch before it ever even occurs. By alleviating soil compaction, you’ll improve air movement throughout the turf’s soil. Additionally, if any thatch has already built up, this will accelerate the breakdown of the thatch.
