Your Soil: Consequences of Compaction Cumming, GA
a house with well-maintained lawn

While you may quick to focus on the greenery and flowers of your landscape, it is important to pay attention to the soil as well. Without quality soil, your landscape simply cannot thrive. A quality soil should do many things, including infiltrate water, store water and nutrients for the plant to use, have some organic matter and air spaces, limit erosion and be plentiful in soil microbes. To accomplish all of these tasks, your soil must have air. Compacted soil, unfortunately, does not have proper air space. If you consider the healthy, freshly tilled soil on a farm, compacted soil is just the opposite.

Areas of compacted soil in your landscape need to be identified in order to foster healthy and beautiful plants. For many homeowners, compacted soil is a result of the following:

  • Poor drainage
  • Human activities (kids play area, walking path, etc)
  • Dog traffic
  • Lawn mowers or other heavy equipment
  • Clay soils

Most areas of compacted soil don’t happen overnight. They develop over years of heavy traffic or specific habits. Therefore, it can be difficult to realize they are forming. Hiring a professional landscaper can help you not only identify areas of soil compaction but also remedy these problem spots. Pannone’s Lawn Pros & Landscaping provides full service lawn care, including drainage solutions and lawn aeration to restore health to your soil.

What our clients say about us

Katherine M.

Would give 10 stars if I could. Pannone Landscaping exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to work with! Brad set reasonable expectations for the timing of the work (leveling, drainage system, fire pit, and sodding), and was the best priced quote with quality material and labor. We cannot speak highly enough of Brad and his crew, from their professionalism to expert advice to skilled work! Our yard went from ugly mud pit to lush golf course. Looking forward to working with Pannone and his team again!

Alex D.

Brad and his team did a wonderful job for us! Our backyard was overgrown and a mess after we moved in. Brad helped us come up with a plan to turn it around that would work for our family. He was quick to respond, reasonable priced, and our yard looks fantastic. We’ve gotten so many compliments. Hope to work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs some landscaping help!

We had the best experience working with Pannone's Lawn Pros & Landscaping! Brad guided us on every aspect of our exterior renovation from hardscapes to the annual color. He worked to find exactly what we were looking for even when items were difficult to find. We greatly appreciate his responsiveness, honest guidance and professionalism throughout the entire project. Thank you Brad!!
