At Grasshopper Gardens we want your lawn to flourish throughout the spring and summer months. In order for this to happen completely, aerating the lawn is a step that should happen each year. 

What is Aeration and Why is it Important

Throughout the spring and summer months your lawn becomes compacted from the traffic and use that comes from your family and friends which prevents healthy growth for the following year. Aeration opens up spaces in the lawn which allows for water, air, and nutrients to reach the grass’ roots. Once the spaces are created, the lawn “catches” fertilizer, seed, and water which helps to encourage natural growth and thickening of your lawn. 

The Benefits of Aeration

There are many benefits of aerating which include:
Healthy Root Growth
Relieves Soil Compaction
Incorporates Organic Matter Into The Soil
Improves Drainage 
Reduces Chances Of Crabgrass Infestation 
And Many More!
