Over time, the earth compacts. It creates a bad infiltration of water, the appearance of undesirable plants and scattered lawn. Thus it is recommended to proceed to a soil aeration at least every two years.
The aeration will have for consequence to rectify the compaction and will favour the growth of roots and will increase air circulation, humidity and fertilizer.
The aeration consists of the extraction of small carrots of earth, the size can be equal or superior to the roots.
It’s better to aerate the ground in the spring when the roots are growing actively. The ground must be soggy and not frozen. The recovery of the plant is much faster, when the temperature is fresh and when there are more precipitations. It can also be done in the fall.
The ground has a natural trend to acidification and the lime is beneficiary to correct the level of the pH in the ground. The lime maintains or increases the activity of microorganisms in the ground and prevents the reproduction of weeds which favour the acid grounds.
