If you notice water standing in your yard after a rain, your soil may be too compacted to absorb the rain water. This could mean it is time to aerate your lawn. Soil conditions in San Antonio are often compacted to the point that your turfgrass may start looking a little thin. The easiest way to tell if your lawn would benefit from lawn aeration is to dig a small square foot hole in your lawn. If the roots of your turf don’t go deeper than 2 inches, it is a good indication your lawn could benefit from lawn aeration.
At Bob Jenkins Pest & Lawn Services, we use a mechanical aerator with hollow tines. This allows soil cores to be removed from your lawn. Other type of lawn aerators such as the spike have actually shown they may further compress your soil. The soil coils can be left on the ground to decompose naturally which will take 2 to 4 weeks depending on weather conditions.
NOTE: After lawn aeration is the ideal time to apply new lawn seed or fertilizer.
