Why Aeration and Overseeding?
Core aeration and overseeding have numerous benefits, so make sure you talk to your current and prospective customers about upgrading their current fertilization program to include aeration and overseeding. Core aeration is the process of removing small plugs of soil from the lawn. By doing this, we are promoting the health of the turf as a whole.
What are the benefits?
- Helps loosen hard, compacted soils
- Improves air exchange in the soil
- Improves water absorption
- Stimulates a deeper root system
- Reduces thatch
- Accelerates microbial activity
All of these awesome benefits ultimately mean you are creating healthier soil, roots and, in turn, healthier turf. Keep in mind that core aeration is a key part of a healthy bionutritional/probiotic approach to turf care.
