Aeration should continue throughout the year as it is essential to get air down to the roots, to get water off the surface and down to the roots as well as to break up organic matter. With a light layer of thatch on all greens it is important to keep this open for air and water movement.
Aeration has to target different depths if it is to achieve all that we expect from it. To maintain the greens we should target aeration at least monthly throughout the year. Pencil or micro tines can be used to keep the surface open but holes from micro hollow tines last longer than those from solid tines.
The mounting diameter of your machine, and the proper length of Tine needed for your aerification are the two most important factors you should consider when selecting the correct tine.
