Aeration is one of the most over-looked and best-kept secrets among Lawn Care Services, and tends to go unnoticed because there is no "wow affect" once it's completed. but having a beautiful lawn is directly correlated to a healthy and vast root system beneath it. An Aeration Service in Winnipeg especially can be important due to our dense clay based soil which compacts a lot more than regular black soil.
Worrying about fertilizer, or spreading new seed before you have paid attention to your soil quality and density, is like trying to repair the engine in your vehicle by filling it with a tank of Premium Gas and hoping "it fixes the problem".
How Does Aeration Work?
It is an invaluable step that addresses the most common cause of mediocre or floundering lawns....The Root system and Soil Compaction.
Think of it this way, "Shallow Roots, Poor Lawn",. ...... "Deeper Roots, Healthier Lawn". Simple right. Compare it to a flower garden. It's common knowledge that if you pack to many flowers or plants into a small area, they compete for water because the roots are to cramp, they can't grow an expanding root system, therefore they fail. The same applies to all the blades of grass in your lawn.
Over time your soil tends to settle, compact and harden. This is exceeding true here in the Winnipeg area where our soil is predominantly made of dense clay. As the soil packs and becomes more dense, nutrients stop being absorbed, water is kept from soaking in and starts to pool and those two vital ingredients stop reaching your lawns root system, and the lawn begins to fail.
Aeration relieves the compaction in your lawns soil by pulling 2"-3" deep cores from the ground which allows your soil to expand and soften. Once this is the case then nutrients and water can penetrate the root system, and your roots have room to grow in the now less densely packed soil. Restoring this healthy environment allows nature, new seed and fertilizer to do it's job.
