Aeravation is the latest turf and lawn practice for the home lawn. It is widely used in the golf and athletic field industry. Aeravating has the ability to stir and loosen the soil beneath the sod without destroying the turf on the surface. The vibrating tines penetrate the compacted soil while loosening the thatch layer creating more of an opening for root growth and absorption of water, air, nutrients and chemicals. Aeravating is also very beneficial in breaking up the compacted soils of new construction before laying sod, encouraging a healthy root zone.
