Aeration is the naturally occurring process of air exchange between the soil and its surrounding atmosphere. Wynn’s Intensive Lawn Care mechanically extracts small 2-4 inch plugs or cores of thatch and soil from the lawn to help improve the natural soil aeration. The extracted cores are then left on the lawn to disperse nutrients back into the soil. Core aeration should be a part of your West Georgia lawn treatment to ensure a healthy and lush turf. Benefits of Core Aeration: Improve air exchange in the soil Enhance water uptake Improve nutrient uptake by the plant Reduce runoff and puddles Improve drainage Improve turf grass rooting Reduced soil compaction Enhance thatch breakdown Enhance heat and drought stress.
