Homeowners often overlook problems associated with soil compaction. Insects, diseases, nematodes, improper watering and/or a lack of fertilizer are often blamed for a lawn's decline when the real culprit is compaction. The problem starts when the top 4 inches of the soil become compressed; thus impeding the movement of air, water and nutrients to the grass roots. This stresses the grass, making it less able to compete with weeds and slow to recuperate from injury. In time, a compacted lawn needs renovation.
If soil is compacted, the solution is straightforward: aerate. The practice of physically removing cores of soil and leaving holes or cavities in the lawn, is defined as core aeration or aerification.
