Aeration

  • Soil compaction is eliminated.
  • Stimulates root growth
  • Rich, fertile soils with good drainage

Why do we have to aerate the soil? When is the best time to do it?

To provide oxygen and prevent plants from deteriorating.

The growth and replacement of the leaves produces straw and this can affect the health of your lawn.

As the soil is compacted, oxygen loses and the roots of plants can stop absorbing water. The aeration will help you break the straw and increase the flow of nutrients, water and air to the roots of the lawn

To perform aeration you have to create surface perforations in the ground, which varies between 5 and 15 cm deep. It is very important not to pass the depth and that the soil is moist so as not to mistreat the roots of the lawn.

This task can get complicated, go to a professional so as not to damage your lawn
