Maintaining a healthy lawn requires aeration, the process involves perforating the soil with small holes to allow air, water and nutrients to penetrate to the grass roots. Which helps the roots grow deeply and produce a stronger, more vigorous lawn. Compaction is a concern for every lawn, but it is a larger concern where clay is prevalent. We find that the Ada, Grand Rapids Township, Forest Hills, and Cascade have a large amount of clay in the soil. Clay is easily compacted and creates weak grass by not allowing air and water into the roots. The aeration process softens the soil and also helps reduce thatch as well, thatch is a layer of organic matter that builds up on any lawn. The process of aeration speeds up the process of decay, by mixing dirt from below the thatch layer and depositing it on top of the thatch. Reducing the amount of thatch on a lawn is important as thatch can contribute to insects, disease, or extensive damage due to drought.
