Turf Grass Plug Aeration

Turf Grass Plug Aeration

A Better Garden would like to help You a lush and well manicured lawn & grounds this season.

Aeration of the lawn is an important aspect of lawn maintenance. Core aeration is where plugs are removed from the turf layer and distributed over the grass. Lawn Aeration helps reduce soil compaction, reduce thatch, allow water to penetrate to the root zone.

The best time to aerate a Denver metro area lawn is in the late spring (April/May) or in the beginning of the fall. Damage can occur to your lawns when performing a core aeration in mid summer. The excessive heat coupled with drought like conditions adversely affect the roots of our cool season blue grass.

If you are a property manager, you need a quality company to provide you with hassle-free service.  Let us take care of you and your properties landscape maintenance needs.
