Hollow tine aeration is a treatment that all lawns should have to help them flourish and reach their full potential. Signs that an aeration treatment is long-past due include a patchy or damaged looking lawn, and waterlogging after heavy rain.

With ongoing lawn maintenance, our experts can determine the perfect time to aerate your lawn, maximising on the time of year, weather conditions, and other ongoing lawn care treatments.

We recommend that all lawns receive a hollow tine aeration treatment annually, usually during either the spring or autumn months. With our lawn care packages, we will take care of aerating your lawn at the most suitable time of the year, so you don’t have to worry about the technicalities.

Hollow tine aeration is a crucial process to boost the overall health of your lawn, resulting in a lush, thick, and beautifully green appearance. It achieves this by improving soil drainage, clearing away debris like moss and excess thatch, and allowing better access to essential elements such as oxygen, water, and nutrients for the grass roots. Hollow tine aeration will also make your lawn more resilient to heavy foot traffic, harsh weather conditions and disease, so the whole family can enjoy your lawn for longer.

If you’re dreaming of a resilient, vibrant, and verdant lawn, hollow tine aeration is essential.

Hollow tine aeration removes small plugs of soil evenly across your lawn, leaving tiny holes for oxygen, water and nutrients to get to the grass roots. These holes will be virtually unnoticeable when looking at or using your lawn, but you’ll certainly notice the benefits when your beautifully green grass starts to grow.

Our team will sweep up and remove any soil plugs or debris after your hollow tine aeration, so your lawn will be left tidy and ready to use.
