A primary reason for an unhealthy lawn is because water and fertilizer you are feeding it are unable to reach the roots of your grass. Aerating overcomes this problem by punching small holes through the thatch and into the soil, thereby creating an avenue for air, water, and nutrients to circulate. Even if your lawn looks reasonably healthy, it will benefit from occasional aeration, especially if it has been compacted by construction equipment or it is a sod lawn with layered soil beneath. Aeration also is recommended any time you are overseeding.
Spring is the best time to aerate your lawn, and Sully’s aerators provide solutions for small lawns or expansive yards. For small jobs, the walk behind Lawnaire V is a 28-inch gas operated unit that is easy to transport and use. For larger jobs, consider our 48-inch pull behind aerator or our 30-inch ride on aerator. Both provide an efficient means of reducing compaction to maximize root growth for a healthy, thick, green lawn.
