Does Having Too Much Outdoor Fun Cause Problems for Your Yard?
Summer is a time for outdoor activity, but patio parties, playing catch in the front yard, and other causes of high lawn traffic can damage your yard when left unattended. These activities can cause soil compaction, cutting off important nutrients to your grass’s roots. Soil must be porous in order to absorb the correct amount of air, water, and nutrients necessary for a thriving lawn.
This process is especially important during the autumn months, when St. Louis and St. Charles experience less frying sunlight and more rain. If your yard’s soil is too compressed during the fall, your lawn may suffer in the consequences come springtime. An unhealthy lawn can lead to permanently dead patches of grass caused by lawn diseases or weeds. By investing in aeration and fertilization yard services in autumn, you save yourself expense in the future for lawn disease management and weed control.
