What is Core Aeration
• With the majority of Australia experiencing plenty of sunshine and long periods without adequate rainfall, soil compaction is a major issue for home owners to contend with.
• Compacted soil restricts the flow of water, oxygen and nutrients to the root system underneath the surface. This leads to a shallow root base and makes the lawn more susceptible to the invasion of weeds.
• A lawn core aerator runs over the lawn removing plugs of soil up to 70mm in depth. Equipped with hollow tines, the core aerator punches holes in the lawn as it advances leaving plugs of soil on the surface of the lawn.
• Lawn aeration helps to reduce soil compaction by allowing water, oxygen and nutrients to get down into the root system and promotes a thicker, healthier lawn.
