Lawn Core aeration is the process of mechanically removing plugs of thatch and soil from the lawn. Aeration opens the soil, helps reduce soil compaction, improves water infiltration, improves turf grass rooting, reduces thatch and acts in many other ways to improve the lawn and reduce stress. Lawn Aeration restores vitality to the soil.
Lawn Core aeration can be used to minimize thatch accumulation, to modify the soil’s physical characteristics by reducing soil compaction. With Lawn Coring, soil plugs are removed from the soil and left on the turf surface. These plugs then break down and redistribute soil throughout the thatch layer. The soil from the plugs helps to modify the physical structure of the thatch, making it a better growing medium.
This cored soil also enhances thatch breakdown by introducing the beneficial micro organisms that feed on the thatch.
Most turf grasses growing in heavy clay or poor soils benefit greatly from annual aeration to reduce thatch buildup and more importantly, to relieve soil compaction.
Lawn aeration will help improve the flow of air, water, and fertilizer to your turf grass. This, in turn, will help to rejuvenate your grass by allowing the roots to grow deeper, creating healthier turf grass and keeping your lawn thicker and greener and weed free.
For large lawn areas: Tractor mounted aerators (usually with solid tynes) are ideal for broad acre aeration including for ovals, golf fairways, tees and sports fields. These machines relieves compaction to a depth of 75mm (using solid tynes), shattering the hardest of soils. Minimum ground disturbance allows play to continue immediately after aerating.
For smaller domestic lawn areas: Walk behind lawn coring machines (usually with hollow tynes, as opposed to solid tynes) are the best choice. These machines are quick and easy to use, and are also ideal for golf greens, tees and bowling greens.
