Hollow Tine Aeration
Ideal when you want to relieve compaction and remove sub surface thatch.
Lawn aeration is a game-changer for cultivating a healthier, more resilient lawn. This essential practice involves perforating the soil with small holes to allow air, water, and nutrients to penetrate the grassroots. The benefits are manifold—firstly, it enhances soil structure, reducing compaction and promoting better root development. Improved air circulation and nutrient absorption lead to a lusher, greener lawn, while also fostering resistance to diseases and pests. Aeration encourages the breakdown of thatch, preventing its buildup and ensuring a more efficient exchange of gases between the soil and atmosphere. Ultimately, investing in lawn aeration is an investment in the long-term vitality and beauty of your outdoor space.
The benefits of Aeration are:
Thins out below-the-surface thatch
Relieves compaction in the soil
Reduces/removes the moss loving environment
Increases water, nutrient and air access to the soil
Encourages root development
Improves the lawn’s ability to cope with drought and disease
An overall healthier lawn
Aeration is an essential part of a good annual lawn treatment programme.
Although there are a few different types of Aeration in our view hollow-tine is the the best for lawns.

Before Our Visit
Give the lawn a cut before our visit, keeping the lawn at its usual length is fine, otherwise, if we will be scarifying as well, you should cut you lawn short.
The Day we visit
Hollow tining is can be a relatively un invasive process if the lawn cut and is not too wet. when we have finished hollow tining, we collect the cores and can remove them or put them on your compost heap.
After our Visit
here is no specific action that needs to happen following this visit but we usually combine aeration with scarification, top dressing and over-seeding
