What is Lawn Aeration?
Lawn aeration? Aerating your lawn is the best way to reduce below surface thatch and compaction. These two elements are often the cause of excessive moss.
We aerate your lawn as part of our lawn treatment programmes; it’s an important part of the overall strategy to keep your lawn in the best possible condition.
The main benefits are:
- reducing below surface thatch
- improving soil compaction
- helps to avoid moss and the conditions which encourage it
- increases soil access to air, water and nutrients
- helps root growth
- make the grass less likely to suffer from disease and dry spells
- improves the condition of the grass
Types of Lawn Aeration
We use two different types of lawn aeration dependent on the condition of your lawn – Hollow-tine and Fracture-tine.
Hollow-tine Aeration thins out sub-surface thatch in your lawn by mechanically removing thousands of cores from the lawn which gives water, oxygen and other nutrients access to the roots.
Fracture-tine Aeration cuts tiny slits into the lawn using specialist machines. The machine has blades which twist like small spades, fracturing the soil and allowing the air access to the lawn. The soil isn’t removed so no cores are left behind
