Aeration Spring & Fall
Much like fertilizing your trees and bushes, we don’t want to put stress on the grass in the summertime so we fertilize in the spring and fall. Aeration is needed because we have such compacted soil here in the Las Vegas Valley. If you’ve ever turned a shovel in the ground in the Las Vegas Valley, you know we have more rock than we have dirt!
We also have to deal with clay. The soil is very compact and if you don’t aerate areas on a regular basis than turf you are trying to nurture may be getting choked out. We run across with an aerator and at the same time put down sulfur. Soil sulfur reacts with clay and helps breaks it down. This is also a good time to do a fertilization treatment.
