Here at Fit Turf™ we offer two options for aeration; mechanical and liquid. Aeration plays a huge role in the overall health of any lawn, and is the single most important tool for controlling soil compaction. Soil Compaction occurs when soil particles are pressed together, reducing pore space between them. Compacted soil has a reduced rate of both water infiltration and drainage, creating a decline in root growth and shoot growth in the turf, and often leaves the lawn with bare areas. This may occur as a result of a high-traffic area on the lawn, such as children and dogs playing, from workers on your property for home improvement, etc.
