This product is 5 Gallons of Air-8 liquid aeration and is shipped in two 2.5 gallon jugs.
N-Ext Air-8™ 0-0-5 Liquid Aeration is designed to break up and loosen topsoil and encourage deeper rooting to drive more oxygen into the topsoil profile.
What if I told you that mechanical aeration isn’t the best way to loosen up the soil and allow grass roots to spread? Blasphemy, right?
If the lawn care world was the Catholic Church I’d be kicked out quicker than Martin Luther.
But think about it like this, the purpose of aeration is to produce more surface area in the soil, right?
Air-8 does that by driving down into the soil and breaking up bonds between all the molecules down there creating space. Every bond that is broken creates more air space (aka greater soil surface area) where grass roots can then spread and grow.
Now, I do still recommend mechanical aeration as a way to make a good seed bed if you are doing an overseeding. Poking all those holes really does help keep everything from washing away.
Plus, running an aerator is a butt-kicking that everyone needs to experience at least once in their life! However, if you are not seeding, then just spray down Air-8 and you will get great results and never need to rent an aerator again.
The recommended application rate is 6 oz per 1,000 sq ft.
This product is shipped in two 2.5-gallon jugs.
1 gallon = 128 oz
2.5 gallons = 320 oz
5 gallons = 640 oz
At the app rate of 6 oz/1,000 sq ft, you will get:
21,300 sq ft of coverage from a single gallon
53,300 sq ft of coverage from a 2.5-gallon jug
106,600 sq ft of coverage from the full 5 gallons
For a 5,000 sq ft lawn, this means you will get ~21 total applications:
6 oz/1,000 sq ft x 5 = 30 oz
640 oz/30 oz = 21.3 total applications
Keep this in mind when you decide how much you need. If your yard is not that big, consider splitting with a neighbor or family member.
