Healthier Turf with Aeration
Aerating relieves soil compaction, improves air and water movement, promotes grass rooting, and improves the overall health of turf. It is also helpful in combating thatch. Aeration is beneficial for areas with heavy foot traffic, such as residential lawns and sports fields. .
Core vs. Coreless Aeration
The two most common ways to aerate are core and coreless aeration. Core aerator machines, also known as plug aerators, use hollow tines to mechanically remove plugs (or cores) of soil and thatch. These tines should penetrate the soil about 2-3 inches deep and leave 20 to 40 holes per square foot. By removing plugs of soil, air and water can reach deep within the soil.
Coreless aeration uses oscillating and vibrating steel tines to fracture hard, dry soil to relieve compaction. Fracturing creates space both sideways and downwards, allowing for more pore space under the lawn’s surface. It is a highly effective way to aerate with minimal surface disruption. Another benefit is there are no unsightly cores left on the turf surface!
