Spring Aeration 2015
Spring aeration is an important factor for the overall health of our lawns in this region. Due to the hard clay makeup of our soil, this should be done twice a year. A Core Aeration will relieve soil compaction and allow a proper exchange of oxygen and nutrients to the root system aiding its development. YOU SHOULD be taking steps now to rejuvenate your lawn. The 2 Landscape Governing Bodies (NCSU and NC Dept of Agriculture) have the following recommendations:
1. AERATION -- All lawns need aeration to loosen soil compaction brought on by the winter temperatures.
2. LIME – Helps balance the soil’s pH level and adds micronutrients such as Magnesium and Calcium.
3. PRE-EMERGENT HERBICIDE- This is a weed blocker that should be applied in early spring to prevent crabgrass and other unwanted weeds from taking over your turf. This is an integral part of keeping your yard beautiful and weed-free. It is applied in conjunction with ORGANIC FERTILIZATION- Nutrients needed for your grass to thrive and the fertilizer works below the soil where weed seeds germinate.
