Many homeowners strive for that picture-perfect beautiful lawn, while some make it, other homeowners are left with a mediocre looking lawn. One way to make sure your lawn is on the right path to ‘perfection’, is to have it aerated. So, do you know what to look for when determining if an aeration is in your Kalamazoo property’s future this fall, and what time of year really is the best time for an aeration to be completed?
Aeration involves removing small ‘cores’ in the turf to allow air, water & nutrients to penetrate to the roots. This is vital in helping produce deep, strong roots, which contribute to a vigorous beautiful lawn.
The best time to aerate your Kalamazoo property is during the growing season, ideally in early spring and again in fall. Spring and fall are both perfect times to aerate. A spring aeration gives your lawn a nice start for the season. While a fall aeration will help by allowing additional nutrients, water, and air reach the soil better, before going dormant later in fall. Aeration’s performed twice a year really help your turf grow deeper and stronger roots, which also helps make the grass more drought-tolerant. Having an aeration completed this fall will help in your quest for a lush, beautiful green turf when spring comes. Fall isn’t just about aeration’s, fire-pits, fireplaces, retaining walls, landscape beds, and water features installed in the fall will give you more time to enjoy your Kalamazoo outdoor living area come spring…get it done now to enjoy later!
