Lawn Aeration in Reston, VA
If your lawn is thinning and balding in places, soil compaction is likely to blame. Foot traffic, drastic temperatures, poor drainage, and other factors can lead to your lawn’s soil becoming densely compacted, an issue that makes it difficult for your grass to access the oxygen, nutrients, and water it needs to thrive. If you’re ready to make this lawn problem a thing of the past, it’s time to call the experts at Blades of Green. Our lawn aeration in Reston will have your lawn back in tip-top shape before you know it. When combined with our lawn seeding treatments, aeration can take your lawn from lifeless to lush in no time.
Liquid and Core Aeration for a Glowing Lawn
There are several common approaches to lawn aeration, and each offers its own unique advantages. Core aeration involves creating small holes in the ground to create channels for water and nutrients to reach your turf’s roots. Liquid aeration is a similar process, but comes with the added benefit of not disturbing the soil the same way core aeration can. Our lawn care experts at Blades of Green are more than happy to help you identify which treatment would be best for your lawn, so all you have to do is sit back and watch your lawn reach its full potential.
Some benefits of investing lawn aeration and seeding in Reston include the following:
- Reduction of soil compaction and thatch buildup.
- Thicker and more vibrant turf.
- Improved germination rates of lawn seed.
- Improved water absorption.
- Reduction in drought stress.
- And more!
