Who Should Take Care of Lawn Aerating for My Pico Rivera Rental Homes?

For your Pico Rivera rental property, ensuring that routine maintenance for the yard is performed is just as important as maintaining the interior. The person accountable for landscape maintenance should be written in the lease. However, many landlords falsely believe that just because their tenant indicated that they’ll take charge of the yard, that they’ll 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. A lot of experts say that aeration once a year would be a good thing. This is especially true if your rental property has soil with 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 required because when the soil becomes too compacted, water and fertilizer will have problems moving down to reach the roots of the grass. If this occurs, the grass may turn yellow or brown because of its failing health; bare patches would appear and the yard may be prone to disease and pests. Not dealing with the issue won’t make the problem vanish. Even if you keep watering or mowing, it won’t be of any help if your grass can’t receive the nutrients it needs to survive.
