The aerator is for breaking down the surface pan of the grass to improve drainage and air penetration to the roots.
This unit must be used in conjunction with the 36″ roller tool carrier.
While most home gardeners and business owners would love to keep the grass on and around their properties looking rich, healthy and verdant, many a lawn has ended up patchy and faded due to a lack of essential care. Thanks to SCH’s Budget Lawn Care range, however, there is no reason why keeping a lawn looking great shouldn’t be easy for anyone, with a wide variety of ready-built, robust tools available at eminently affordable prices. This 36″ tow-behind aerator accessory, for example, simply attaches to your ride-on mower and enables routine lawn maintenance to be performed with pleasing efficiency.
Aeration is important because grass needs access to air and water in order to grow, but soil compaction makes it difficult for these vital substances to penetrate to the grass roots. Aerating involves cutting into the lawn surface so that oxygen, moisture and nutrients can get to where they are needed and thus helps to ensure that your lawn stays healthy year after year. Ideally this should be done at least annually, and for best results aeration should be conducted in either the spring or the autumn when the weather is warm but not too dry so that your lawn can recover quickly.
On smaller lawns you can do this with a garden fork, but manual aeration in larger gardens is often a long-winded and strenuous business. With the SCH tow-behind aerator’s 91.5cm (36″) working width, on the other hand, even the largest lawns can be maintained with ease. Once attached to your garden tractor or ride-on mower, the aerator uses a rotating drum of hardwearing aeration blades to cut into the surface of your lawn at a depth of up to 7.5cm (3″) (as well as ensuring that grass has access to oxygen and moisture, this also performs a little root pruning to encourage new root growth so that your lawn will look its best). Sturdily built using high quality materials for added resistance to damage and corrosion, this tough aerator is therefore perfect for those who love a healthy green lawn almost as much as they love a bargain (aerator accessory must be used in conjunction with the SCH 36″ roller/tool carrier attachment, available separately).
