Aeration is the process of loosening compacted soil to make it easier for nutrients and resources like sunlight, and water to reach the roots of your grass. This lawn care service is extremely beneficial for lawns, especially here in Texas where the soil usually becomes compacted throughout the year. There are two types of aeration: liquid aeration and core aeration. However, there are significant differences between the two types: liquid aeration is less invasive than core aeration, yet still yields the same benefits. It can also be performed twice a year rather than once, and won’t leave unattractive cores on your lawn. Core aeration is an invasive process that involves pulling cores out of your lawn, leaving holes and plugs of soil that decrease its curb appeal. It inflicts stress on your grass, and it’s usually performed once in the fall when your grass is at its strongest and can recover from it. While both will loosen the compacted soil, liquid aeration will deliver the same results without being invasive.

Liquid Aeration Is Less Invasive

If you are thinking about aerating your lawn, you’ll want to consider how invasive the process will be for your lawn. Core aeration is an invasive process that causes a lot of stress for your grass. What’s more, because you need to drill into the soil for core aeration, there is a chance that irrigation systems and drip lines could be damaged. On the other hand, liquid aeration uses a liquid formula that’s sprayed onto your lawn and will actively break down and loosen up compacted soil. It still provides the same benefits as core aeration, but without causing too much stress to your grass and you won’t run the risk of damaging your irrigation system.

Liquid aeration can be performed twice a year.

Throughout the year, your lawn will experience frequent foot and machine traffic that gradually compacts the soil. Although it’s inevitable, compacted soil can stunt grass growth and harm its overall health, making aeration a necessity. However, core aeration can usually only be performed once in the fall when conditions are best for your grass to recover; this can severely limit its access to resources for most of the year. Liquid aeration doesn’t put too much stress on your lawn and can be performed in the spring and fall. Aerating your lawn twice a year will allow nutrients and other resources to easily reach the roots of your grass year-round.

Professionals usually recommend pairing aeration with overseeding to fill in any patchy areas and promote a strong, thick lawn.

Liquid Aeration Doesn’t Hinder Your Lawn’s Curb Appeal With Unsightly Cores

You’re aerating your lawn to make it healthier and more attractive, not to hinder its curb appeal. After core aeration, your lawn will be littered with cores of soil and holes in its surface, bringing down your property’s curb appeal. These unsightly cores are left on your lawn for a while until they eventually break down. Fortunately, liquid aeration won’t do this! As a liquid formula, it doesn’t leave any visible impact on your lawn, keeping its curb appeal intact while supplying it with all the benefits aeration offers.
