There is nothing quite like enjoying the physical appeal of a beautiful lush lawn, especially your own that you have invested time and energy into making it so beautiful. As you may know, maintaining an inviting-looking lawn does not happen without some proper attention and effort. One vital step to ensuring a healthy lawn is the aeration and fertilizing process. Some property owners like to perform their own lawn aeration, while others like to hire a professional for help. Below you will find a list of reasons why a professional may just be the right choice for you.
Aeration is the process of creating holes within the soil in order to allow water, oxygen, grass seeds, and fertilizer the ability to reach deep into the ground and touch the base of the grass roots. The result is a healthier, heartier lawn. The holes in the soil are referred to as ‘plugs’ or ‘cores’. In order to provide your lawn with high-quality care, you may wish to hire a professional to aerate your lawn for you. Continue reading to learn why.
Hire a professional to aerate in order to protect yourself: Aeration equipment is generally bulky and heavy. Although you can rent the equipment, it can be a hassle to transport it to your home and get it on and off a truck. A professional will bring their own machines with them, and they have the knowledge and transporting methods down to a fine art. They also have superior equipment compared to most rental machines that are available.
Hire a professional to aerate because of their expert knowledge: Based on your local weather conditions and climate, a professional will know the best time to aerate and how often your particular lawn needs aeration. A professional also knows specifics about applying the right type of fertilizer and/or grass seed for your particular lawn.
Hire a professional to aerate your lawn for consistency: A professional lawn aerator, operated by a knowledgeable user, will provide consistent performance throughout your entire landscape. There’s a fine line between too many cores and not enough, so in order to get the best results, it’s best to work with someone who has experience doing it.
Hire a professional to aerate your lawn so they can spot any troubled areas: Someone who is familiar with lawn diseases or weed problems will be able to spot troubled areas throughout your lawn. From that point, the professional will be able to treat any issues that you may have throughout your lawn.
Even though you may enjoy some yard work such as mowing, edging, weeding, or raking, some lawn tasks are best left to someone else.
