5.0 out of 5 stars Good exercise, 16 Aug. 2013

This review is from: Kingfisher Hollow Tine Lawn Aerator
This is a good piece of kit for small to medium lawns. It is strongly constructed and easy to use. My garden is clay and,therefore, not the easiest to manage. I used it in the spring as, due to the prolonged wet weather over winter I had mostly moss but the effort was worthwhile as i now have the greenest lawn around with lush grass. This was achieved by taking out the plugs of soil (clay) in rows 6 inches apart and sweeping a mixture of 50/50 sharp sand and peat free compost into the holes. I found that it was easier to carry out the work when the soil was quite moist, as the soil slipped through the tines much easier so there was less effort required to push the aerator into the ground. I am 86 so not as fit as I was when I was in my youth but I'll be giving the lawn another go over after scarifying in the autumn. All in all a good well made gardening tool that takes up virtually no space when not in use.

Wow, 86 and you managed to aerate your lawn with this! I'm only 66 and I can only manage to do about 2 square metres before I have to give up. My garden is also heavy clay and I think I might have to wait until next spring when, as you say, the ground is nice and wet before I finish the job! I tried watering a section of the lawn, hoping that might have the same effect but alas, it didn't......

If you get a long wet spell and the ground is soft underfoot give it a go but pace yourself. 2 square metres and stop for a beer then try another 2 square metres.
