The Garden Master GMPA Lawn Aerator is claimed to be easy to operate and produce results similar to machines twice its size and cost.
By combing a reliable and easy to start 4hp Honda engine with 4 high-tensile hardened tines, itís said to be powerful, economical and easy to maintain.
The GMPA Lawn Aerator makes light work of tough jobs pushing the tines deep into hard soils removing cores up to 70mm.
Lawn aeration is the secret weapon in making your lawn healthy. Aeration involves making holes in the lawn either by pushing a rod into it or by "coring", extracting a plug of soil. By aerating your lawn you provide the following benefits to your lawn and its root system:
- Oxygen gets to the roots and the soil allowing it to "breathe"
- Organic fertilizers and nutrients get access to the root system
- Water is able to better soak the soil and reach the root system
- Helps to break up thatch
- Tight, compacted soil is loosened up allowing the root system to grow
This tool also comes in spike and coring versions. Use the coring version if at all possible. If you don't, you're not removing soil to allow the roots to expand. Power aerators can be a bit large and take some muscle to control so be careful when using this tool.
