Heavy-traffic and clay-like areas of the lawn make it prone to soil compaction. The process of aerating involves removing plugs of soil to allow water, air and nutrients to penetrate previously compacted soil or thatch-covered areas and reach the roots of the grass. Here are some reasons to rent an aerator:
Easy do-it-yourself project: Aerating your lawn using a rented aerator is the perfect task for do-it-yourselfers, who want a beautiful lawn, but do not want to pay for a professional lawn service.
Beautiful lawn: Using a rented aerator to aerate your lawn prepares it to receive the water and nutrients it needs and actually lessens thatch. This aeration promotes a healthier lawn, making it more resistant to heat, drought, foot traffic and disease.
The rental solution: You may find it cost prohibitive to buy a high-quality aerator. Renting an aerator lets you get high-quality lawn results without using a professional lawn service or buying an aerator.
Environmentally responsible: By aerating your lawn using a rented aerator you allow more water and nutrients to reach the roots of the grass, which reduces the need to water or apply herbicides to the lawn.
