The 5 Benefits
of Lawn Aerating
Why Weed Pro recommends
lawn aerating be done annually
Helps with soil compaction and encourages root development.
Helps water and nutrients to penetrate Regina’s heavy clay soil
Helps break down the thatch layer. Check out our blog on why power raking is an unnecessary and damaging service to your lawn.
Helps thicken up your lawn by giving room for adjacent grass plants to send a tiller to the hole to start a new grass plant and multiply.
As the name implies, aeration helps get air into your soil, an essential growing element for grassroots.
With Regina’s heavy soil, aeration is an essential service for healthy lawns.
In order to achieve and maintain a beautiful lawn, you should employ basic lawn care practices such as properly mowing, fertilizing and watering.
Weed Pro can help you save time by taking care of these weekend-consuming tasks for you.
It is also important to ensure that nutrients can reach the soil beneath your grass. Aeration is an extremely vital element to a healthy lawn in Regina, especially because of our heavy clay soil.
What is lawn aeration?
Aeration involves perforating the soil with thousands of small holes. These holes allow air, water and nutrients to penetrate the grassroots.
This helps the roots grow deeply and produce a stronger, more vigorous lawn.
When to Aerate Your Lawn
The best time for aeration in Regina is
sometime in August or September.
These are the months when grass plants store the most energy in the root system in preparation for the coming winter and hence when root development is at its peak. Another bonus to fall aeration is your sprinkler system is started up (as opposed to April/early May) and it’s easy to find and mark your sprinkler heads. All the heads that are greater than 6 inches away from the edge of the lawn need to be marked before we come.
The second best time is in the spring to prepare your lawn for the summer ahead and take advantage of the water penetration benefits of a little thatch management.
Thirdly, if you haven’t aerated your lawn for a few years and your soil is noticeably compact, aeration anytime during the summer will be a benefit. Golf courses often aerate 2 to 5 times during the growing season due to the heavy traffic they receive.
Note for customers with underground sprinklers:
We do not want your sprinkler heads damaged by our machines. You will need to mark sprinkler heads that are greater than 6 inches away from the edge of your lawn.
This includes any sprinklers along the property line of a shared front lawn with the neighbour! Sprinkler heads on the perimeter of the lawn, less than 6 inches from the edge of the lawn, do not need to be marked. Weed Pro will send you an email reminder to mark your sprinklers before we come out.
As most underground sprinkler systems are installed only on the perimeter of the lawn, if we do not see marked sprinkler heads, we will assume no heads are in the middle of the lawn.
