What type of soil do you have there? I live in North Carolina in the US and it is all clay. Aeration is great for us. If you have sand it may not be as beneficial.
Do you have to do hills or just flat--Large areas or just small lots. All this will affect the aerator you want. Can you rent some. Try some out before you buy.

If you are going to buy one get one that is cam operated. It has 4 wheels on it and you don't have to fight it as bad the other ones will work you to death. Do a google search for cam aerators, I think Billy Goat makes one

The plugr machine by Rock Solid is what you want. I just got one in August and can tell you it is easier to operate and tires you out less than many other machines on the market (I learned this the hard way!). It pulls great plugs too. Good luck.

If you have hills the old pluger will be hard to work. Be sure to get the new one that is self propelled
