Soil Aeration: the best thing for your lawn

Soil aeration is the mechanical removal of small cores of soil from the lawn using an aeration machine. It is the most important thing you can do to create a healthy, dense and robust lawn.

Aeration combined with overseeding makes your lawn vital, robust and dense.
