Punching out holes alleviates stress, makes a three-ring binder useful, and turns seat cushions into delicious donuts. Fill lawns with holes with today’s Groupon: for $60, you get a spring core aeration for lawns up to 5,000 square feet from Picture Perfect Lawn Care (up to a $120 value). Groupon holders will be charged $10 for each additional 1,000 square feet of aerating, and Picture Perfect Lawn Care will travel up to 30 miles north of Highway 285.
Picture Perfect Lawn Care’s attentive team grooms greenswards during spring core aerations. During the aeration process, hollow coring tines will poke into the ground to remove small plugs of soil and open up passageways for water to penetrate more deeply into the earth. The increased drainage reduces environmentally damaging run-off and shoe-damaging puddles while also soaking thirsty grass roots in H2O. The dense root networks that result will help lawns survive drought, disease, and Benny Hill Show marathons.
After aeration, the soil plugs are left out on the lawn so that the beneficial microorganisms that reside within them can help break down remaining thatch and organize morale-boosting potluck dinner parties for the local insect population. Plugs dissolve within 7–10 days, although raking can accelerate their decay.
Though Picture Perfect Lawn Care sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
