Your soil can become very compacted with heavy traffic or a thick layer of thatch. The red clay in the Georgia soil tends to compact more quickly than soil in other areas due to its tiny pores, and it can seem hard as a brick after a long, hot summer. When the soil is compacted, it restricts root growth and does not give roots the space they need to receive nutrients from the soil surface, water, and oxygen. Core aeration involves poking or plugging out cores of soil from your lawn, and this increases the flow of oxygen, nutrients, and water to the roots that are so needed. By partnering with Pride In Turf for your lawn care, you can achieve the results you want and become the envy of your neighborhood!
