After a summer of making the most of your lawn, it's probably time for a spot of lawn maintenance to help it fare through the cooler months.
If you've been walking all over it, or had the barbie sitting in the same spot, you have probably compacted the grass and ground underneath.
Another sign that your lawn might need a hand is if there are certain spots that repeatedly attract puddles - you'll notice them when the wet weather arrives - which is often an indicator that the water isn't sufficiently seeping through.
So what to do?
Get your hands on an aerator like the one available at Kennards Hire, and take it for a spin in your backyard.
The benefits of aerating speak for themselves, as it allows for the grass roots to breathe and improves water and nutrient penetration.
Annual aerating as part of your garden DIY is one of the best things you can do for a lawn that is summer-ready, year after year.
The options at Kennards offer easy-to-use spikers for a smaller manual job, lawn corers for grass and ground that has been heavily compacted from use, and even aerators that can be attached to mini-loaders.
