Types of Aeration in Landscaping
Core aeration uses hollow tines to remove cylindrical parts of the soil, which leaves a hole for water and nutrients to pass through to the roots. Core aeration allows the plugs of soil to break down after being distributed on the topmost layer of the earth. Moreover, lawn professionals prefer this method. Aeration is best done some days after a rainfall to help the aerator penetrate the soil easily. Core aeration helps remove compaction from the lawn and speeds up the absorption rate of fertilizers.
This method involves puncturing holes in the lawn with an aerator that carries a sharp blade or tine. Homeowners can participate in spike aeration with the use of spike aerator ‘sandals” attached to their shoes during gardening. Lawn thatch can be controlled by deep-raking the soil during aeration. However, homeowners must be careful and practice landscaping safety measures. It’s best to aerate during the spring for easy nutrient penetration, but lawns with cool-season grasses will benefit more from fall aeration. However, spike aeration can cause more harm than good when performed on a large scale with the use of spike machines. There’s a higher risk of soil compaction with the use of spike machines, especially on clay soil types. So, it is best performed on silt or loamy soil type.
Liquid aeration is a scientific and more advanced method of aeration. It is said to yield faster results and proves to be more effective than mechanical means. Liquid aeration happens when there’s the creation of microscopic pores in the soil, which acts like sponges and aids in the absorption of water and nutrient. Also, this can penetrate every aspect of the soil, unlike traditional methods of aeration with tines. Liquid aeration improves water flow and allows for swift nutrient passage to the grassroots. Loose soil also helps lawn ventilation, which aids weed control. If the roots can quickly move, it would be easier for them to access the nutrients needed for their health.
