Giving Your Lawn a Fresh Start – The Case for Aeration

Now that Spring is here we’re bringing back our aerating recap. Enjoy!

Click to watch footage of the Toro 30 inch stand-on aerator, one of several aerating equipment options.

The Toro 30 inch stand-on aerator is one of several options when it comes to choosing aerating equipment Aerating (or aerifying) is a simple but critical step in lawn care, and when you do it is just as important as how you do it. With the ground largely thawed, it’s not too early book an aerator rental.

What aeration does is give your lawn a chance to rejuvenate itself after a year of wear and tear. Sports fields and heavily trafficked areas suffer the worst of it, but all lawns experience compaction to some degree, and that damage can hamper oxygen delivery to the roots of your lawn. Aerating is a good way to give those roots a chance to breathe and soak up vital nutrients.

You can use a spike-roller, but most experts agree that a core-aerator is the better way to go. A spike-roller forces the compacted ground further into the soil rather than removing it while a core-aerator pulls the topsoil out of the ground in “plugs” and yields the greatest results. If you’re using a core-aerator be sure to leave the plugs on the lawn – they’ll break up and return to the soil along with all of their important components. They also help with thatch decomposition!

For many people, renting an aerator makes the most sense so give our Rental Department a call to book a rental. If you’re a first-timer, be sure to avoid sprinkler heads, underground lines, large stones and shallow tree roots, all of which can do serious damage to you and the machine. Now get out there and get that lawn back in shape!

Tech Tip: Protect Your Snow Equipment with Fluid Film (Video)

Rusty Skid Steer Loader Foot Pedals

Don’t let winter do this to your machine.

We use Fluid Film on our rental equipment. Sometimes our machines go out for a full season, and we’ll get a machine back that doesn’t look so good. That’s why we prep them with rust protection, which we apply to areas on a machine that get a lot of exposure – areas like the undercarriage and the wheels and axles. The time it takes to add Fluid Film to a machine does pay off. Snow removal is hard on our equipment, and this helps keep it looking new and protected from damage. We use the stuff, our Parts Department sells the stuff, and our shop can apply the stuff if you need a hand.  If you’re more of a DIY-er check out our “How To” video, starring one of our very own expert technicians:

Just In: The Hyundai HD70C-9 Compaction Roller

On the heels of the recent Heavy Equipment Guide article on Hyundai Series 9 Single and Tandem-Drum Rollers, we welcomed the newest addition to our compaction roller lineup here, the HR70C-9. It’s a single-drum model, designed primarily for soil and aggregate compaction. A pad foot (or “sheep’s-foot”) kit can be attached to the drum to aid in compression, due to smaller areas that contact the ground. Questions? Our equipment experts love questions and are here to help. We sell Hyundai compact rollers, and they’re also a part of our rental fleet.
