Aerator and Dethatcher

The most important part of a nice green lawn is the roots of the grass. The roots of grass must be able to grow, and moisture has to get to the roots. Hard dirt does not allow for either of these things to happen, the water simply can not penetrate to the root layer, and the roots cannot grow through this hard dirt, so your grass dies. A lawn aerator pulls plugs of dirt out of the ground that dissolve with rain and loosely fill back in the holes left behind to keep the soil soft, this also helps the thatch layer to properly decompose and give back to the soil, instead of blocking water from reaching it. An aerator makes a huge difference in the quality of grass you can grow, and is very quick.
