One landscaping company is giving a few tips and reasons on why aerating a lawn is crucial for creating a healthy growth.

Dynamic Landscaping & Lawn Maintenance says aerating a lawn prevents thatch from building up within the yard.

If the thatch is not properly maintained, the living and dead stems become intertwined below the surface resulting in a brown and brittle lawn.

By using an aerator, bits of soil are removed from the lawn creating airways for the fertilizer to get absorbed into the roots.

Soil and plugs that are also removed through the aerating process will act as natural fertilizer.

This process should be repeated every two years for the best results, and should be done before the weather becomes extremely warm through the summer months.
