Maintaining a lawn can take quite a lot of effort, such as mowing, weeding, and fertilising, but sometimes we ignore the real important part of a lawn, the root zone. It’s in the root zone that the serious work takes place. It’s here that the roots extract the water and nutrients from the soil, transferring them into the plant in order that the process of photosynthesis can take place and the plant can produce the food it requires, by using the energy from the sun. Lawn Aeration is perfect for a healthy root zone.
Billions of bacteria live in the root zone, they play a vital role in maintaining the health and efficiency of the root system and in order to do this they need a supply of oxygen. Soil naturally contains oxygen but over time it can be reduced due to soil settlement and compaction. Lawn Aeration creates tiny channels in the root zone allowing oxygen to circulate and refresh the beneficial bacteria. The healthier the root zone, the healthier the lawn.
