Lawn Hollow Tining

Lawn Hollow Tining

Hollow Tining is the process of removing small cores of soil from your lawn in the Autumn.  Carried out to relieve compaction, the holes can be left open for the Winter or topdressed either with old removed cores or fresh soil.

Coring is also used for soil exchange, the process of removing clay or layered soil and then replacing it with fresh soil or sand to improve drainage/structure.

Depending on the size of tines used, approximately 5%-8% of lawn surface area can be removed with tines in one treatment.  Hollow tining can be carried out annually but after a period of years may disturb surface levels so every three years is common practice.
