The thatch on your lawn can be your biggest hindrance in growing a vibrant and healthy lawn. A thick thatch can prevent water and essential nutrients from reaching the soil, and the result is a lot of your time and effort wasted for a minimal result. Luckily, there are several ways that you can reduce the amount of thatch present in your lawn and thus make it easier to keep your lawn healthy.

Aeration is when a machine takes cores out of your lawn that are between 3 to 5 inches long. When you aerate your lawn you are creating more physical space for water and nutrients to enter the soil, as well as creating more room for the grass to spread its roots.

Aeration is often combined with over seeding in the Fall, which helps lawns recover from challenging Summer growing seasons.
