1. Should I buy or Rent?
The first question when it comes to buying a lawn aerator is how often will I use it. For most people it is worth it to rent if they only plan on aerating once a year.
2. What Type of Lawn Aerator to Buy?
The next question is what type of aerator to buy. Typically don’t want to buy a spike aerator, a liquid aerator or a coring aerator. (I have written extensively about them on my other pages.) I almost always suggest buying a core aerator. The reason s because a core aerator will give you the best results. It allows your soil room to expand by leaving large gaps in the soil. In addition, it penetrates deeper than most liquid aerators do. Liquid aeration is okay to use, if you combine it with a core aerator.
3. What about Penetration?
The next thing that you should know before you buy a lawn aerator is you want to buy one which will penetrate into the soil. Usually, they need to be at least 2 to 3 inches long. Most sandal aerators, don’t work because the spike are not long enough. If your aerator can’t penetrate very deep, it isn’t going to help out your yard very much.
4. Mechanical vrs. Hand Aerator
The last thing that you should decide when you are going to buy a lawn aerator for sale, is whether you want to buy a manual or a hand aerator. Generally, hand aerators are recommended for people who have less than 1,500 ft.² of grass. We have some of the best have lawn aerators for sale listed on the site. Make sure you get a coring aerator if you want to get the best results. Also make sure you get a two prong, rather than a three prong hand aerator. In addition, you really want to have the steel reinforce time that you can push it to your lawn using your foot. If you don’t have a lot of grass, then a hand aerator tends to work well. However, if you have a large lot, you’re better off buying a mechanical aerator. And, these aerators are expensive, but if you buy the used, it is possible to buy them for a lot less. If you buy an aerator with a Honda engine, then it is going to be more likely to last you for a long time.
