You may have heard of liquid aeration and wondered what it is and if you should use it.
What is Liquid Aeratoration?
Liquid aeration is a process that helps improve your lawn’s quality by using a liquid application that is absorbed into the soil.
How Does Liquid Aeration Work?
The process creates pore space throughout the soil, allowing more air, water, and nutrients to absorb deeper within the soil profile, which promotes a healthier lawn by promoting root depth.
What are the Benefits of Liquid Aeration?
There are several benefits of liquid aeration, including:
- Improving the quality of your lawn
- Encouraging healthy grass growth and root system
- Reducing compaction of clay soil and standing water
- Improving bare areas in the lawn
- Soaking the ground without runoff or puddling
- Enhancing air and water penetration
- Revamping your soil’s condition over time
How Often Should You Use Liquid Aeration?
Although it can be used at any time during the season, liquid aeration is advised in the spring and fall. You might think about liquid aeration at least once a year, but twice a year will yield greater benefits depending on the state of your grass.
What Are the Drawbacks of Liquid Aeration?
There are a few drawbacks to liquid aeration, including:
- It may be less effective in very dry or very wet conditions.
- Liquid aeration is less rough on your lawn than core or mechanical aeration. If you have severe compaction or bare areas, core aeration may be more beneficial for your lawn.
- Results are produced slower than a core or mechanical aeration, as it is working internally, within your soil profile.
Is Liquid Aeration Right for You?
Liquid aeration can be a good option for those who want to improve the quality of their lawns through a cheaper alternative. It can also be a good choice for those with heavy foot traffic on their lawn. There may be better options than liquid aeration if you have very dry or wet conditions.
How Does Liquid Aeration Compare to Traditional Core Aeration?
Liquid aeration can be an alternative to core aeration. Mechanical aeration removes actual soil cores, whereas liquid aeration does not. Your lawn receives a spray treatment. The treatment will penetrate your soil after being soaked in and start breaking up the bonds of your soil.
