Hollow Tine Aerations
This reduces compaction of the soil by removing cores and enables the soil to settle naturally. It also allows necessary air to the roots of the grass. A well aerated lawn promotes good grass growth and is less susceptible to moss. Depending on the condition of the lawn, a hollow tine aeration is required every 2 – 5 years. Once a lawn has been aerated, we recommend keeping use of the lawn to an absolute minimum for, at least, a month.
Some unscrupulous companies may offer solid tine aerations as these are easier and much quicker for the operative to carry out. However, at EJH Horticulture, we only believe in the best and therefore take time to clear up the cores created by hollow tine aeration. Whilst solid tine aerations do allow some air to get to the roots, they compact the soil in surrounding areas and can cause damage to the lawn in the long term.
Due to the high cost of commercial waste disposal, any cores that are removed is bagged and left for disposal by the customer. We can arrange to dispose of this, if requested, for an additional charge.
