lawn aerator is self propelled

A lawn aerator has tines that dig plugs of dirt from the soil, and allow water and nutrients to get to the root system below. The aerator is self-propelled — moving forward when the tines are engaged.

The aerator leaves plugs on the dirt behind to indicate which areas have been covered. Use the lawn aerator in spring and fall.
