Lawn Aerators

What you need to know about Lawn Aerators


Lawn Aerators are used for two purposes: to alleviate soil compaction & to pierce through thatch or interlinked roots. Overly compacted soil inhibits healthy lawn growth, & is a common problem with lawns that see a lot of footfall, or lawns with particularly fine soil. Compacted soil prevents air, moisture & nutrients from fully penetrating to root level, making it difficult for grass to survive & flourish. Likewise, thatch has the same effect, acting as a barrier between the surface of a lawn & the roots beneath it.

The standard Lawn Aerator consists of a simple, graspable frame, & a set of hollow tines. Using your body weight to press the tines into the earth extracts plugs of soil, alleviating soil compaction & breaking through thatch. This allows much needed air, water & nutrients to penetrate through to root level. Adding fertiliser after aeration is a good idea, as it assists nutrient uptake. Slightly more sophisticated Lawn Aerators are also available, with sprung tines & a collection tray to gather the soil that has been removed with minimal effort.

Alternatively, if you've got a bigger budget, Lawn Rakers & Scarifiers can also be used to provide lawn aeration.
