LAWN AERATION WITH SUP-R-SOIL

Aeration is the process of creating the opportunity for better circulation in your lawn. It provides better drainage, better penetration of water, and better air infiltration in the soil—in other words, a better environment for your lawn’s root system. Lawn aeration promotes lush, green grass but is a task often overlooked by property owners.

At Fairway Lawns, we’re always looking for services and products that help bring our customers healthier, greener yards, that’s why we use Sup-R-Soil, a liquid aeration product unlike any other soil amendment on the market!

WHAT IS LIQUID AERATION?

Liquid aeration is a lawn treatment that reaches deeper soil and loosens it better than other lawn aeration tools can. While mechanical aeration has its benefits, it only covers about 3–5 percent of your lawn. Sup-R-Soil, on the other hand, covers 100 percent of your lawn and provides other benefits that mechanical aeration does not. This environmentally-friendly product loosens and aerates compacted soil and is completely natural and biodegradable.

WHY LAWN AERATION CARE IS IMPORTANT

In order for grass roots to grow thick, deep, and strong, they need air, water, and nutrients. When thatch gets more than a half-inch thick, it prevents the flow of those essentials. Thatch is a tight layer of organic matter (living and dead stems, leaves, and roots) that accumulates between the layer of actively growing grass and the soil underneath. Thatch and compacted soil create a significant difference in the health and beauty of your lawn. The nutrients in Sup-R-Soil help reduce thatch.

Sup-R-Soil also forces sodium down below the root zone. Removing sodium from the root zone of your grass is so important because the sodium occupies spaces (called exchange sites) in the soil that should be occupied by nutrients, like fertilizer. Once the sodium is gone, the grass can more readily absorb the nutrients, which means you get the most benefit out of your fertilizer. High sodium levels prompt deficiencies of other nutrients like calcium, magnesium, and potassium. Unfortunately, excess sodium is frequently present in your local water source that you use to water your lawn.

HOW SUP-R-SOIL IMPACTS YOUR YARD

Sup-R-Soil is a natural polymer with both a negative and a positive charge. If you’ve ever played with magnets, you know that aiming the positive end of one at the positive end of the other will push the magnets apart, because opposites attract. The principle behind Sup-R-Soil is somewhat the same—the positive and negative forces work together to push it through your soil and aerate it. Sup-R-Soil:

Improves nutrient retention, maximizing the benefits of fertilizer.

Eliminates the need for aeration with a machine.

Maximizes the benefits of rainfall or your watering, even during drought.

Reduces thatch, soil erosion, and soil compaction.

Only one application of Sup-R-Soil per year is necessary, as the effects are long-lasting. Our lawn care experts provide quality lawn aeration services with Sup-R-Soil that can improve the health and beauty of your lawn!
