Say hello to AVL’s new lawn aerator.  Lawn aeration is especially important in the southwest regions.  As time progresses and your lawn is mowed year after year the top four inches of soul compacts.  Imagine trying to get grass to grow through road base or concrete.    This is where the lawn aeration comes in.  The aerator pulls 1-2 inch plugs out of your lawn which provides holes in the lawn for water to seep into, fertilizer to penetrate to the roots, and oxygen to get into the soil.  All of this greatly helps the quality of your grass.  Lawn aeration will help your sprinkler system penetrate into the roots, and is an integral part of lawn maintenance.
