What is core aeration and why is it beneficial?
Core aeration is simply the process of mechanically removing plugs of grass every few inches throughout your lawn. The beneficial point is to open up and decompact the soil so that more air and water can get into the root system creating a more desirable grass growing environment. Increasing air circulation also does wonders for lawns that are prone to fungal infections. Fungi are the only disease problems we see on Colorado lawns, so anything that helps keep them in check goes a long way toward building a healthier lawn.
