Lawn aeration is the process of mechanically pulling plugs of soil from your lawn. The plugs are deposited on top of the lawn during this process, which break down and help decompose existing thatch in the lawn. The purpose of aeration is to:

  • Allow your lawn to relieve soil compaction
  • Allow water and fertilizer into the soil
  • Allow the roots to grow deeper into the soil
  • Give the roots room to expand

Whatcom Lawns’ team of professionals is fully trained to expertly aerate your lawn neatly and efficiently. Specifically, aeration helps your lawn in the following ways:

  • Increases air exchange between soil and air
  • Reduces soil compaction
  • Enhances thatch decomposition
  • Encourages deeper, healthier root growth
  • Conserves water by increasing soil intake
  • Boosts nutrient intake
  • Makes turf more tolerant of heat and drought
  • Increases soil resiliency and cushion
  • Reduces water puddles and runoff

Whatcom Lawns can give you a healthier and greener lawn by utilizing the process of aeration. Soil compaction will not break up with one session of aeration but will most likely need to be completed one to two times annually, depending on the severity of soil compaction. However, the benefits will definitely show as you continue to ensure that your lawn is healthy by regularly aerating it.
