Lawn Aerator Sandals

My garden is on fairly heavy London clay, and the lawn not been dug or ventilated for many years. Despite this, it’s in pretty good shape but could be better, so I thought I’d aerate it as it’s the right time of year.

After testing it with a fork, I felt the ground might be too compacted for a rented hollow-tine aerator. So after doing some reading up, I bought a pair of your lawn aerator sandals, which arrived promptly today.

They take a while to set up, particularly getting the straps tight enough to grip your boots properly.

I’m pretty good on my feet but even then I found it essential to have a pole I could use for leverage and balance. They can get quite struck in gooey ground like mine once your own body weight has pressed them in firmly. I wouldn’t want to lose my balance with one of both feet rooted - you could easily sprain or even break something.

As another reviewer has mentioned, the best way to use them is to walk backwards. This way you don’t walk over the areas you’ve just spiked, and the sandals definitely benefit from the toes being lifted from the ground first and then the heel- the opposite motion to normal walking.

It’s slow work if you do it thoroughly and quite good exercise. My lawn took about 90 minutes to do thoroughly. It’s quite tough on the legs so probably not ideal if you have bad knees.

Because the spikes are not very invasive, you can use them again - a little and often will be good whereas they only recommend using a machine once every three years. I also found it quite fun. It will be interesting to see how the plastic soles last as they are subject to a fair amount of stress in use, but I’d definitely recommend them.

Brilliant idea for spiking lawns. Very useful for someone with health problems not having to exert heavy pressure.
