A Healthy Lawn is an Aerated Lawn
The simple act of aerating can prevent thatch, improve drainage, increase oxygen and grow a thick healthy lawn. One major reason to aerate is to relieve soil compaction. Grass growing in compacted or wet or slow draining soil is often invaded by weeds and develops thick thatch. A heavily thatched lawn is deprived of oxygen and won't allow for good root growth, resulting in grass die off. Drainage will be poor and not allow nutrients to reach the root system.
- Increases and stimulates shoot growth
- Improved wetting of dry soils
- Accelerates drying of wet soils
- Increases infiltration
- Creates a full plush lawn with healthy growth
Why Use Ventrac Aerator Attachments?
Ventrac has more aerating choices to address your lawn care needs. Lower your equipment costs by utilizing versatile attachments to get your work done. Open spoon tines (EB480) create a hole without bringing a core to the surface, saving the extra step of cleanup.
