Lawn Care and Aeration
Aeration is a process of inserting holes in the ground either manually or with the aid of a machine. Machine aerators are extremely efficient at breaking through the 'Thatch layer' of a lawn. Improved air circulation (Carbon Dioxide out Oxygen in) and increased water and nutrient consumption at the roots of your lawn are just a few of the benefits. The best time to aerate your lawn is either in Autumn or Spring. The soil is likely to be naturally moist aiding in the correct setting of the holes. Spring is ideal when just entering the growing season giving the lawn time to heal.
How frequently aeration is required is dependant on the lawn in question. New lawns are best done twice a year, hard or clay soil once yearly and all other types once every 3 years. If your lawn is unhealthy or not growing well increase the frequency. After aeration fertilizer can be applied then mow and water regularly. Take a look at our Garden machinery hire products.
