When Should I Aerate My Lawn?

Aerating your grass is the process of removing soil from your lawn so that air, water, and other nutrients can reach the roots. This process helps to achieve a healthy lawn that will flourish. Aerating your lawn is best completed during the peak growing season of your grass. Most grasses will need aeration during the Spring months. It is best to contact your local landscaper so that they can inspect your lawn, as you may not need aeration.

Does My Lawn Need Dethatching?

Dethatching is the method of removing dead grass stems, roots, and other debris from the surface of the soil. Thatch is a normal occurrence, but if it is too much, it can cause your grass to die, cause diseases, and allow pests to inhabit your lawn. A professional landscaper will be able to inspect your lawn and see if you need dethatching.

It is best to hire a landscaper to inspect your lawn before summer. They will be able to help you with aeration, dethatching, and fertilizing. A lush lawn takes work and dedication. Luckily Huskie’z Landscaping is up for the task!
