What happens if a lawn in Somerville is not aerated?

If not aerated, a lawn can be weak and dull looking. It will also be susceptible to weeds that can damage the plants and grasses. A yard with compacted soil can be difficult to maintain. However, it is important to know that the health of a lawn is not dependent only on aeration. There are other factors to consider as well, in order to have a green and healthy lawn like proper watering, mowing, fertilization, and pest control.

Lawn aeration is best done at least once a year during Fall or early Spring time season. However, there are instances when a more frequent lawn aeration is needed like when the lawn is heavily used, has clay soil or subsoil.

Should I fertilize my lawn first before aerating it in Somerville?

No. Fertilization is best done after lawn aeration to ensure that the nutrients will be absorbed properly by the grass roots.

Is it safe to aerate freshly seeded lawns in Somerville?

No. It is advisable to wait at least 6 months or until the seedlings reach full maturity before doing aeration.
