How to aerate your lawn

We learn how to aerate your lawn in this episode of the ‘How to get the perfect lawn‘ series.  Watch this short yet informative video by Michael Palmer to find out exactly how it’s done:

You may be asking…So what is aeration and why do I need to bother to aerate? Well…Aeration is the process of driving holes into a lawn with either a garden fork that’s wriggled around or if you want to splash out you can purchase an aerator.  The reason for doing this is to get water, oxygen and nutrients down to the roots.  Aeration also helps when the lawn gets compacted through heavy usage. If you’ve scarified your lawn before hand it’s advisable to wait until your lawn settles down.

As Mike says there’s no need to go to the gym as aeration will give you your daily does of exercise!  Just make sure there’s a nice mug of tea at the end of it to refresh you.  Cheers Mike!
