Lawn maintenance hinges on a few basic tasks: mowing, feeding, weeding and aerating. Tackle these four tasks faithfully, and your turf will be on a fast track to picture-perfect good looks. It’s easy to spot the need to cut, fertilize or weed, but knowing if turf needs aeration is not so obvious – unless you know the signs.
In some cases, you don’t really need to test your lawn to see if you should aerate. Soil that’s compacted on a regular basis needs to be aerated on a regular basis. Compacted soil puts the squeeze on grass roots, inhibiting their ability to function – and robbing lush looks from your lawn. If your lawn is frequently driven on, grass probably already looks thin and less than ideal. The weight of a vehicle – even a mower – compacts soil, so it’s important to vary mowing patterns to slow soil compaction.
Heavy clay soil or a thatch layer of more than half an inch also signals the need for aeration. Lawns that show heavy wear and thinning from foot traffic, turn brown quickly when dry weather lingers, or have thick stands of clover are good candidates for aeration. If water tends to puddle after rains, taking a long time to drain, your soil could benefit from aeration. If grass growth stops in the heat of October and soil feels as hard as rock, you need to aerate. Last but not least, if you have never aerated your lawn, chances are you need to, but it’s worth doing a simple diagnostic test to make sure.
How to test:
Simply use a screwdriver or pencil and push it into the lawn.You should be able to reach a depth of 3-4 inches. If not you should aerate/ core your lawn.
