Core Aeration "Breathe Life Into Your Roots"
Beautiful Green Lawns in Georgetown
Even if you’ve done everything you can think of to improve your Georgetown lawn, there’s a chance it could still appear overgrown and under-manicured. Worry not, however! Douglas Landscapes is here to help. There’s a good chance that aeration is the missing link between you and the green lawn you’ve been striving for.
Over time, your soil naturally becomes compacted, leaving the subsoil undesirable for healthy lawn growth. Walking, playing, mowing, and watering compact the particles and reduce the air space necessary for root growth. Compaction is the greatest in the upper 1" to 1.5" of soil and needs to be relieved by mechanical aeration. This mechanical process plugs 2-3" deep, finger-size holes into the soil to improve the air, water and nutrient exchange with your roots.
Almost EVERY lawn needs an aeration at least once per year! Here the 6 main reasons why:
- Stimulates Root Growth
- Reduces Compaction
- Enhances Water Uptake
- Enhances Thatch Control
- Improves Oxygen Content
- Improves Nutrient Availability
Please Note - Please Mark/Flag Sprinkler Heads OR we will add $10 for the additional service.
The aeration process is quite straightforward when handled by the experts at Douglas Landscapes, so sit back, and let us take care of it for you.
Aeration works best when the soil is wet; working with ground that is already somewhat damp means it’s easier to penetrate, so we can be more efficient in our work.
When Your Georgetown Lawn Needs Some Help, Call Douglas Landscapes
It’s easy to forget that grass is a living thing. For most of us, the only time we realize this is when it comes time to mow the lawn again. Like any plant, grass has a growth cycle, so aeration will be the most effective if it’s done during the proper season. We recommend getting in touch with Douglas Landscapes once spring rolls around, and then again in the early fall, for the best possible results. Aeration will have the biggest impact if it is done in the right season, so make sure to reach out when the time is right.
By aerating your Georgetown lawn twice a year, your grass is guaranteed to be in tip top form year round. Gone are the days of uneven lawn growth, a backyard that’s more weeds than grass, which despite your best efforts refuses to grow uniformly or be finally rid of pesky weeds.
If you’re not sure whether or not your lawn could benefit from aeration, give us a call and we’d be happy to help you out. Generally speaking, we recommend that all Georgetown residents go the aeration route, simply because it is an effective and efficient way of ensuring that your lawn is receiving the necessary nutrients it requires to stay healthy, but we’d be happy to walk you through the process should you have any questions!
Our top priority is to keep the lawns of Georgetown green as can be, so if you’re in need of some green in your life, we’re the folks for you. Don’t just take our word for it; check out the testimonials from some of our happy Georgetown clients!
