Over time, your lawn can become compacted for a variety of reasons — from simply walking on it every day to the pounding of heavy rain. The compacted surface of the lawn inhibits air, water, and nutrients from entering the soil and reaching the grass or plant’s root system. Aeration solves this problem by perforating the soil with tiny holes in order for all the natural elements to penetrate the soil and facilitate plant growth, resulting in a dynamic and more beautiful landscape. You will need the help of a professional lawn care service, like Brookfield’s A to Z Property Maintenance in Brookfield, CT, to ensure the proper implementation of lawn aeration.
Here are three reasons you should hire an aeration professional rather than choosing DIY lawn care:
- General Expertise: No amount of manual-reading and Internet-researching can guarantee that you won’t mess up while operating an aerator. Not only is the machine heavy, but certain functions and settings are used for specific purposes and lawn conditions
- Time Savings: Lawn care is neither a five-minute process nor an annual activity — it’s an ongoing process that takes time to complete. Instead of devoting your precious time laboring over various landscape-related tasks, it is much wiser to leave it to a seasoned professional; they have both the skills and tools to do it right.
- Investment Benefits: Hiring a lawn care service expert to aerate your lawn is more economical than purchasing an aerator or other machinery, which are extremely expensive. Renting lawn equipment isn’t cheap either — an aerator could cost about $80 to rent for a day. On the other hand, lawn care companies pay off their equipment purchases incrementally through the volume of contracting work that they take on.
