Over time, the lawns on your property can become worn, and the soil compacted. The compaction significantly slows down water penetration into the ground, affecting root growth. This results in poor drainage and thinning lawns.
The best way to breathe new life into your lawns is to get core aeration done. This process helps loosen the soil and improves its moisture-holding capacity as well. Properly aerated soil allows the roots to breathe freely and absorb nutrients at a better rate, which enhances their health. In addition to regular watering, fertilization, and de-weeding, your soil requires proper aeration for healthy grass.
We at Thorpe Landscape Inc. are a force to reckon with in the landscaping industry. For over 30 years, we have worked consistently to provide commercial, residential, and HOA clients in the Northern Virginia Area with the best aeration and landscape care services at the most cost-effective pricing.
Customized Aeration Services
Our company recognizes that every landscape is different and that every client will also have specific needs. In some cases, the soil compaction is severe, and the heavy use in that space affects the condition of the soil. It is why we first survey the area and assess the state of the ground before planning core aeration. We offer customized services that meet client needs and focus on personalization.
Types of Soil Aeration
Every job we manage is handled with expertise. With regular aeration, you will see that your lawns are fresher-looking and healthier. Depending on the condition of the lawns, we use different aeration techniques such as:
- Core Aeration - This is referred to as core plugging and is widely used on commercial and residential lawns. We use a specialized aerating machine to remove plugs of soil carefully. The plugs will be left on the surface of the soil, and the air gets into the subsurface.
It helps to break up the compacted soil and allows nutrients and water to reach the root zone. We usually aerate the soil in fall and then apply fall fertilizer and grass seed if needed. It helps the grass to fill in well.
- Aerovating - In this unique process, we use a modern machine with vibrating tines that penetrate the soil & also vibrate at a high-speed. This movement breaks up the compacted soil effectively. The process is useful when the weather is drier.
Landscape Aeration Plans
While we can aerate lawns at different times of the year from fall to spring, as mentioned, its best to carry out this activity during fall. The fall fertilizer application is done at this time also supports root growth, and these treatments are applied at that time.
