Nearly every lawn could use a lawn aerator. A lawn aerator is a tool that will help turn the soil and create holes in the top portion of the soil. It is that simple! When the soil is broken up and holes are created, the soil can then get water and air to the appropriate roots to help grass and plants grow and stay healthy. Earthworms will also be able to get into the soil to help fertilize the soil with much ease.
The soil often becomes compacted due to various human activities such as when the soil is being walked on, played on, driven on or anything else done on it. Unfortunately, when this happens, it slowly begins to suffocate the grass and eventually kills it. Your lawn problem may not be due to insects or anything else. It could just be that the soil has become too compacted and the grass can not get any water and earthworms can not get the air to breath. This is when a lawn aerator can help fix all of your problems.
Use your lawn aerator regularly, such as in the autumn and spring. Do not use your lawn aerator on dry soil; use it only when it is damp. Do not use your lawn aerator when the soil is deeply waterlogged or extremely dry.
Use your lawn aerator on a regular basis and whenever it is needed. Use it properly and you will have rich, fresh grass and plants growing on your lawn. It will be as beautiful as it can be. This is especially important if you plan to create a garden, plant flowers or anything else. Earthworms, water and oxygen will all help to keep your garden, plants and flowers to stay healthy and grow to their fullest potential.
