Core Aeration: A Breath Of Fresh Air!

Shawn Karn, The Grass Expert

Often viewed as one of the most important things a lawn can benefit from, a core aeration service really is a breath of fresh air for your lawn. Aeration is performed using a special machine that removes small cores of soil about the same size as your index finger. These cores are then left on the lawn and decompose quickly under mowing and precipitation.  

Aeration is recommended annually, with the best times being in the Fall or Spring, when the lawn is actively growing. Combined with other cultural practices, an annual aeration will give you a thick, healthy, and robust lawn, especially when combined with overseeding.

Benefits of Using Lime On Your Lawn

Shawn Karn, The Grass Expert

Calcitic Lime is a lawn care supplement that is primarily used to improve the acidity in soil. Calcitic lime, in essence, is limestone that has been broken down into fine particles. As the name suggests, it contains a high amount of calcium.

Compared to dolomitic lime (which also contains magnesium and much less calcium) calcitic lime is 4 times more effective and works much faster; dolomitic lime applications can take up to 4 years to breakdown and start working, which isn't ideal for residential turf.

Regular liming can do a wealth of good for your grass. With a number of benefits, calcitic lime is a welcome addition for every home lawn, especially those that need a little TLC.
