Aeration allows for loosing of the soil, better oxygenation and water circulation. It breaks through the dead thatch and is an essential step for healthy grass growth. Based on your yard’s requirements, J.R. Lawn and Snow provide manual and mechanical soil aeration.
Benefits of Lawn Aeration:

Decreases deep soil compaction
Improves air (oxygen) exchange with roots
Reduces puddling of rainwater
Increases water uptake and drought stress tolerance
Improves turf resilience and cushioning
Stimulates new growth with its vertical mowing action
Lawns in Ottawa, Nepean, and Orleans require aerationbecause of various natural factors. Some of them are listed below:
Heavy clay soils
