Lawn aeration can greatly improve the overall health of your lawn. Core lawn aeration uses a specialized piece of equipment, commonly known as a lawn aerator, to make little holes in your lawn. The nickel-size holes made by the lawn aerator give your roots greater access to air, water and fertilizer. Core lawn aeration also helps control the amount of thatch in your yard, that layer of tightly woven plant material that can prevent nutrients and other items from reaching your soil. Why consider manual lawn aeration when the experts at TruGreen have specialized equipment and the know-how to help you achieve your desired results.
Lawn disease can happen anywhere and to any kind of lawn, no matter how healthy you think your lawn is. Some common lawn diseases you might encounter are brown patch, rust, and dollar spot. Brown patch is a lawn fungus that commonly starts out as a small brown spot and then quickly spreads. Dollar spot, most common in the early summer, is another type of quick- spreading lawn fungus. Have you ever seen orange-colored grass blades? They are most likely infected by a lawn disease known as rust. If you suspect that your lawn is unhealthy and has one of these lawn diseases, it's best to call the lawn disease experts at TruGreen.
