Are you trying to improve your lawn? Do you want lush green grass? If you have tried everything, you need to try this: liquid aeration. Aeration is a must do 1-3 times per year, and liquid aerators make your job 10 times easier with just a simple hose application each time.
Among the different types of lawn aerators, liquid aeration works totally differently. It is basically a soil conditioner with benefits. Liquid aerators create the perfect soil density by lessening crusting, aggregating sandy soils, and loosening up clay soils. With good soil density, the grass roots can then reach water and other nutrients improving their root system and thus the whole lawn. With healthier grass, your lawn can fight off bugs, disease, and weeds easier.
There are a few advantages over mechanical aeration when you use a good liquid lawn aerator. Liquid aerators add chemicals & acid to their aerators. Both of these help the soil recover from pesticide or herbicide toxins that may be in the soil.
The second advantage liquid aerators have over mechanical aeration is they remove sodium from the grass roots. Too much sodium in the soil can often cause compaction in high clay content lawns. Relieving sodium from the soil at the level of the roots once again give the roots room to grow.
Sodium encourages compaction in high clay content soils & also reduces nutrient absorption. With a good liquid aerator you can avoid these negative affects of sodium by pushing it past the root system of the lawn allowing your healthy green grass to thrive.
You need to be prepared to do a number of applications of liquid aeration. Mechanical aeration is required 1-3 times per year. Many liquid aerators claim they will last for a full year, but if you have to use a mechanical aerator 3 times per year, I would plan on that with a liquid aerator at least for the first year.
