Lawn Care - Core Aeration Benefits

Lawn
The number one enemy of healthy lawns is compacted soil. Air gets compressed out of the top layer of soil by children's play, heavy rains, foot traffic, parked cars, mowing and construction equipment. It is vital that the soil be opened up so air can enter it. Core aeration can remedy soil compaction issues.

Winterizing your lawn

As summer fades, it’s easy to put the mower away and forget about yard work. Take advantage of fall’s cooler temperatures to prepare your yard for winter – and next spring. Certain tasks completed in the autumn can lead to greener, thicker grass next season.
