Mechanical core aeration has been the primary means for aerating lawns for decades. Because of the mess and damage created by mechanical core aeration, researchers have been working on alternative methods to deliver similar results. Liquid aeration is now a replacement for mechanical core aeration.
Like mechanical core aeration, liquid aeration…
- Improves water movement into soil
- Stimulates soil biology activity
- Increases organic material decomposition
- Increases nutrient retention
Unlike mechanical core aeration, liquid aeration DOES NOT…
- Leave a mess of soil on the lawn
- Rip up portions of the lawn
- Require flagging of inground systems, such as irrigation and dog fences
- Damage inground systems
- Create voids for weeds to germinate into
Unless you are seeding or your lawn is newly sodded, bioLawn will be using liquid aeration this fall.
