Lets talk aeration.
Now for those that don’t know, aeration is creating holes down into the soil to alleviate compaction, so that air, water, and nutrients can reach grass roots.
Now the best times to aerate your lawn is during the growing season, when the grass can heal and fill in any open areas, or during the cool seasons like early to mid fall.
Do you have to? No you don’t have to but let’s be honest no one wants a half way decent looking yard. One to two times a year isn’t a big deal. It improves water, nutrient and oxygen movement into the soil therefore improving rooting for the grass making it healthier.
You can rent an easy to use aerator at Home Depot, Lowe’s, United Rentals, or Sunbelt Rentals.Until next time friends!
