At Carolina Turf and Mosquito, we want to help you keep your lawn looking great. We have extensive experience in the turf management industry, and we offer a range of services to keep your grass healthy and green. One of the many services we offer is lawn aeration, which involves poking holes in the surface of the soil to let water, air, and nutrients more easily reach the roots of your grass.
In this article, we’ll go over a few ways to tell whether you need lawn aeration services.
- Hard Soil – If your soil feels hard to the touch, you most likely need lawn aeration services. This feeling of hardness means the top layer of soil is solid, without gaps, which in turn means that water and air won’t be able to reach the roots of the grass below, or at least not very easily.
- Puddles – Another indicator you may need lawn aeration services has to do with the way it absorbs, or doesn’t absorb, rainwater. If puddles form on your lawn when it rains, it means the water isn’t soaking into the soil like it’s supposed to, and we encourage you to call our team to schedule lawn aeration.
- Thinning, Withering, or Yellowing – Other signs you need lawn aeration can be seen in the overall condition of your grass itself. If your grass seems to be thinning, dying, or turning yellow or brown, then it is clearly not getting enough water, air, or nutrition. Our lawn aeration experts can fix this issue to restore your lawn to a lush green state.
