Core aeration is the traditional lawn care method of mechanically removing small cores/plugs from the soil in an attempt to reduce soil compaction, thatch and improve nutrient/water uptake. Overwhelming evidence from university research has proven over the last few years that mechanical aeration is not as beneficial as once thought. Core aeration in many cases actually increases compaction of clay soils and the benefits are short-lived. Furthermore, mechanical aeration poses the risk of damaging sprinkler heads, harming surface roots of trees and shrubs and can also spread turf disease.
Here at Nutri Green we have long been committed to adapting our lawn care program to the latest and most advanced technology. With this in mind, we are now offering Gypsum Soil Treatment Services as a more beneficial and cost-effective alternative.
The use of gypsum applications preserves soil structure and won't disturb your grass. Applying gypsum, a naturally occurring mineral helps in breaking up compact soil as well as changing the structure of the soil that may be compromised for the grass to grow through foot traffic, drought, or erosion. Although gypsum may not be traditional lawn aeration, it is more effective in allowing nutrients and fertilizer into your lawn. Nutri Green always recommends having your lawn treated with gypsum lawn aeration as part of a complete lawn care service. Your grass deserves the best to look its best. Nutri Green delivers the lawn aeration service your lawn needs to be healthy all year!
