Lawns may deteriorate over time due to excess thatch, soil compaction, or a combination of the two. Aeration helps to manage thatch buildup and reduce problems arising from soil compaction. Proper aeration can help build a thicker, healthier turf with superior resistance to weeds, diseases, and insect pests.
