Aerating the lawn for lush growth

Damaged lawn areas need air in order to breathe.
When moss and matted grass have spread throughout the lawn and even yellow patches have formed, the aerator is the right solution. It plucks the weeds out of the ground and ensures that the grassroots are provided with a sufficient supply of oxygen once again.

Aerating done right

The lawn should be mowed and dry. Then move the aerator quickly over the lawn in a chessboard pattern. The matted grass on the lawn may subsequently be raked together, and grass seeds can be sown over the bald patches.

Expert tip

An electrical aerator is not always necessary; when it comes to smaller lawn areas, a manual aerator is, for the most part, gentler and more effective since it is more easily manoeuvrable and simpler to use on smaller lawn areas.
