What Is Liquid Aeration?

what is liquid aeration

Liquid aeration is an organic and natural lawn treatment we use to help air, water and nutrients get to the root system of your grass. We prefer liquid aeration for a few different reasons. Its primary benefits include loosening soil, better root development and fantastic results with no mess. Liquid aeration promotes healthy, even lawn growth. 

Whether you’re a homeowner or a business owner, you want to make sure your lawn is healthy and thriving. Aeration is a key part of keeping your lawn in great shape. In this article, we’ll take a look at why aeration is so important, how lawn liquid aeration is unique and how to choose the best liquid aerator for your lawn soil. 

Why Is Aeration Necessary and What is the Best Type of Aeration?

Aeration is needed to allow your lawn to receive the nutrients it needs from water, sunlight and other nutrients. With proper aeration, your lawn can flourish and grow. Without it, your lawn will be too compact and won’t be exposed to the health benefits it needs to flourish. Aeration contributes to many parts of your lawn, including:

  • Aesthetics: A healthy lawn looks good — you need that aeration for it to look well taken care of and alive. Investing in aeration means investing in the overall appearance of your lawn. You can impress neighbors, clients and friends just by getting some aeration service done. 
  • Longevity: Quality aeration will also help extend the life of your lawn. Routine aeration ensures that your lawn will always have a way to get nutrients. 
  • Overall health: Aeration contributes to the overall health of your lawn. It’s one of the best things you can do to make sure you keep it looking healthy and thriving for years to come. 

Aeration, whether through manual or liquid aerators, is great for soil and necessary parts of lawn care. 

What Is Liquid Aeration, and How Does It Work? 

Liquid aeration penetrates deep into the subsoil, softening it so plant roots can flourish. It works in sandy and clay-based soils. Our organic product will break down your clay by increasing beneficial microbial activity. The entire process increases the absorption of nutrients needed to create density in grass areas. Humus is also present in our liquid aeration application for sandy soils to give better water retention, allowing for additional absorption. The result is a visibly healthy lawn.

Benefits of Liquid Aeration

Liquid aeration offers many benefits for your lawn. It penetrates much deeper than traditional core aeration. A prototypical aerator only penetrates two to three inches. With our 100% organic liquid aeration, Mother Nature helps it get where the roots need it most. Some other benefits of liquid aeration include the following. 

Increased Air and Nutrient Penetration

Plant roots and helpful microorganisms in the soil rely on oxygen. Non-aerated, compacted soil suffocates the life within, causing your plants to wither away. Aeration allows enough oxygen into the ground for microbial life to thrive and feed your plant roots. Aerated soil lets plant roots access and use the nutrients they need. 

Increased Water Filtration

Aeration also increases water filtration within your lawn. That way, your grass and other plants will have access to the nutrient-rich water they need to thrive. Water filtration results in more even and lush plant growth. 

Less Puddling in Lawns

Another benefit of lawn aeration is improved drainage. Compacted soil can cause poor draining, which leads to puddling in your lawn. Puddling is a nuisance and a sign of uneven water distribution. After using liquid aeration, you will notice less water pooling throughout your entire lawn as drainage improves in hard-to-reach areas. Lawn aeration promotes water flow, increasing drainage and decreasing puddling. 

No Messy Cores

Traditional core aeration pulls cylinder-shaped cores out of your lawn to create air pockets, resulting in a mess. Our liquid aeration is a fairly new development in the lawn care industry. It allows your lawn to perform better without leaving behind messy cores. We can also apply a beautiful blue tag-certified seed when we finish aerating. It will enhance further applications by filling in unwanted bare areas throughout your entire property.

100% Organic and Natural

At OrganicLawns, our liquid aeration is 100% organic and natural. You can rest assured knowing the process is ethical and sustainable, not a burden on the environment. It uses a combination of natural microbes to eat away at the thatch layer between plants and their roots. It uses no harmful chemicals or other environmentally damaging contents. 

Better Root Development

Liquid aeration promotes better root development. Your lawn will require less water in the hot summer months because of the increased length in your root system using this method. The deeper roots in your lawn will uptake the nutrients from our healthy fertilizers much more efficiently. Better root development leads to more rapid growth and helps achieve the ultimate goal — a lush, green, weed-free lawn!

Better Overall Lawn Health

Liquid aeration’s combined effects lead to improved overall lawn health by giving plant root systems greater access to nutrients and water. The even distribution of resources throughout the lawn eliminates unsightly patchiness and helps create a beautiful, uniformly green lawn. 

Liquid Versus Manual (Core) Aeration

If you’re a homeowner, you could be wondering which type of aeration is best. Nowadays, you have a couple of different options to choose from — liquid aerators and manual — or core — aeration. Whereas liquid aeration uses a simple spray to help loosen up the soil, core aeration uses tools that poke holes in the soil to allow for more nutrients to get in. 

One of the main differences between liquid and core aeration is the lasting effects. Manual aeration will likely have a more immediate impact on your soil, whereas liquid aeration can offer more lasting advantages.

Which One to Choose?

Even after knowing the various types of aeration, you may still be deciding which strategy is best for you. Ultimately, this will come down to your unique situation and what you’re looking for out of your lawn. If you want a quick and easy solution, then core aeration may be your best choice. But if you want a lasting solution that can help promote the overall longevity of your lawn, then you’ll probably want to go with liquid aeration.

To be sure, it’s best to consult with a professional service like Organic Lawns that can help see which option would be best for you.
