Who Should Take Care of Lawn Aerating for My Raleigh Court Rental Homes?

Manually Aerating the Lawn at a Rental Home in Raleigh CourtSeeing to it that routine maintenance is performed on the yard of your Raleigh Court rental property is just as vital as maintaining the interior. The person responsible for maintaining the landscape can and should be indicated in the lease. However, many landlords assume, since their tenant agreed to attend to the yard, that they will also edge, trim and complete the necessary but less frequent tasks, such as aerating the lawn every year. But because this activity takes special knowledge, skill, and equipment, chances are that it is up to the property owner to take care of it.

Aerating a lawn is an important part of keeping it green and healthy. Many experts suggest aeration once a year and sometimes more if your rental property soil has a lot of clay, is heavily used, or is otherwise tightly compacted. Aeration requires special tools, such as a machine that will cut a small round plug in the grass and dirt beneath and pull it out. There is also a device that makes holes in the ground with spikes, but this method, if not performed correctly, can actually make matters worse, and is not recommended.

The aeration process is necessary because when the soil gets too compacted, water and fertilizer will have a difficult time reaching down to the roots of the grass. If the yard is neglected and this was to happen, the grass will be unhealthy and turn yellow or brown. It would develop bare patches and would be prone to disease or pests. Not addressing the problem would only make it worse. It won’t matter if you continue watering or mowing if your grass won’t get the nutrients it needs to thrive.
