Nobody wants a patchy lawn with areas of overgrowth interspersed with dead or dying spots. You want uniform greenery that’s lush and attractive. Chorbie is dedicated to providing beautiful landscaping that elevates your property overall appeal and value, and it starts with a well-manicured expanse of lawn. In addition to regular mowing, we offer a lawn aeration service to combat soil compaction’s detrimental effects.
What is soil compaction, and how can lawn aeration service from the experts at Chorbie help?
Soil Compaction is a Deterrent to a Healthy Lawn
Whether your lawn is brand new or well-established, the soil underneath is in a constant state of shifting, which affects your grass. Shifting ground is a natural occurrence in all lawns that results from weather, foot traffic, mowing, the buildup of dead plant materials, and natural earth movement. One of the most significant issues that arise from shifting ground is soil compaction.
Soil compaction in lawns is not a matter of if but when. The most common indicators are slow growth and a patchy lawn, resulting from a stifled root system. This is an issue that won’t resolve on its own, no matter how much you water your lawn in the hopes of encouraging new growth. You need to aerate the soil to make room for root growth, water, and nutrients.
An Aeration Service is the Cure for Soil Compaction
Simply stated, an aeration service opens up pathways in your soil for water, air, and sunlight to penetrate the ground and encourage grass growth. Some of the benefits include:
You might not think aeration is necessary, but regular lawn aeration service can help to prevent uneven growth and dead patches that require sod to fix.
The Advantages of Chorbie’s Liquid Aeration Service
If you were to call most lawn care companies to perform an aeration, they would probably employ an aerator. This clunky tool works by pulling plugs of soil out of the ground to create the pathways mentioned above. Over time, the holes will close, and the soil plugs will reabsorb back into the ground.
While an aerator has been the tool of choice for years, it has its disadvantages. First of all, after the service, your lawn will be full of unsightly plugs and holes. Secondly, and more importantly, you could have damage to your sprinkler system – especially if your system utilizes drip lines.
Chorbie no longer uses an aerator for their aeration service. Instead, we use the latest science by employing a liquid aeration product. This product is sprayed on the lawn and has the following benefits:
For clients on a recurring service with us (like mowing), Chorbie offers this up-to-date aeration service as a one-time service or on regularly scheduled annual maintenance. Our technicians abide by all State regulations, and our Customer Service team is quick to respond to all calls and emails. So, if your lawn is looking sickly or sparse, trust Chorbie to encourage a thick, lush sea of grass that will transform your property from dull to dazzling.
