Eventually, the roots will not be able to take up vital nutrients and water. St. Louis is known for their clay soils which compact very quickly. But just poking holes in the ground is not enough. The depth, size, spacing, and timing of the aeration process can improve the results. We don’t just poke holes in your lawn, we take the time to properly aerate and maximize the results.
