“Lawn aerators are garden tools that are needed to aerate your lawn grass so it remains green and healthy. Aeration makes it possible for air and moisture to seep into the root system thus allowing the roots to grow deeper and compact together with thickening the turf.”
There are many various kinds of lawn aerators available today; pick one that is suitable for your grass and soil type. Aeration footwear is an excellent option for small spaces in front of your home while a rotary spike aerator will be required if your lawn is medium sized. But if you have an enormous lawn or require aerating big spaces just like parks and sports fields, then a core aerator is necessary for the task. While the first two are not hugely expensive, the latter is quite heavy on the pocket. The decision for aerators significantly is dependent upon your requirements and the size of your lawn.
A better choice for someone with a larger lawn might be a rolling aerator. There are many that you can push, and a few that you can tow behind a lawn mower or tractor. These could be somewhat difficult to maneuver, however make the job of aerating a lawn yourself easier than if you did it manually.
Spike lawn aerators are the most easily obtainable ones both online and also in department or hardware stores. This is no equipment or machine but rather a pair of boots that are fitted with unusual looking spikes at the sole. You should walk around the lawn wearing these heavy boots which in turn will spike the soil loosening it up. It is okay to make use of these for small patches of grass but isn’t recommended for large lawns or where heavy growth is needed like in a stadium or park.
The last method of aeration is liquid aeration. This method is the least known, yet considered by some as the most practical way. Liquid aeration is achieved by spraying a liquid solution over the ground, then watering it in. The advantages of using this process over core aeration are many. There is less mess, no cores in the awn. Another advantage is the liquid can be utilized everywhere, whereas the coring is limited around sprinkler systems, tree roots, etc.
