Finally - the birds are chirping, the air is fresh, and your colorful flowers are starting to bloom. Almost every lawn can benefit from a little boost in spring when your grass is coming out of winter dormancy. Liquid aeration is one great way to help. Aeration services will open up your soil and give the roots of your grass much better access to nutrients, water, and sunlight. In turn, this makes your grass and plants stronger, healthier, and more prepared for the growing season ahead.
There are two types of aeration: core and liquid. Core aeration is the process of poking many small holes in your soil to open it up. This is the most popular option, however, we recommend waiting until the fall to schedule this service when your grass is stronger and can handle more soil disruptions. That is why our company offers liquid aeration services in the spring when your grass needs gentler care. Liquid aeration also offers many behind-the-scenes benefits!
Liquid aeration uses its active ingredient to loosen up dense particles in your soil.
You can think of liquid aeration as a shampoo for your soil, just like there is a shampoo for your hair. The active ingredient in most liquid aeration products is ammonium lauryl sulfate, which is also commonly found in hair shampoo. This makes it easy for the solution to break down dense particles within your soil and loosen everything up. It also allows for easier absorption of water, sunlight, and nutrients.
Liquid aeration is a much gentler process than core aeration because it does not pull out cores of soil to gain access to your lawn's roots. Rather, the liquid treatment will travel far down into your soil and work its magic from underneath. The solution also contains ingredients like iron and amino acids which help to condition your soil. It's like a 2-in-1 for your lawn!
Why should you schedule liquid aeration in the spring?
In the spring, your lawn is just coming out of dormancy. It's as if your grass is waking up from a long, long nap! Therefore, it's best to be as gentle as possible with your lawn care during this time. Because of this, liquid aeration is a great option for your grass in the spring. If you were to core aerate your lawn, you would be pulling a bunch of soil cores, creating holes throughout your lawn, and causing soil disruption. Your grass can absolutely handle this when it is stronger in the fall, but springtime requires gentler activities.
Liquid aeration will encourage deeper root growth, prevent summer dormancy, and much more.
We've already discussed the main benefits of liquid aeration, but here are a few more that occur behind the scenes of every liquid aeration application!
