Benefits of Aerating

When you aerating your lawn it breaks the soil surface by punching holes into the ground. A plug aerator will remove clumps (plugs) of soil out of the ground, while spiked aerators simply push holes into the soil.

The benefits to aerating are:

  • Oxygen and water are better able enter the soil
  • Rainwater won’t just run off
  • Earthworms and other bugs will have more room to live
  • Your fertilizer will reach the roots
  • These benefits lead to healthier grass, which means fewer weeds.
