Mechanical Core Aeration
What is Aerating?
An aerator pulls plugs out of your soil. This helps loosen compacted soil and allows air and water to reach the roots. Aerating is considered a better way to dethatch your lawn since it puts less stress on it.
When should I aerate my lawn?
The best time for aeration is during the growing season, when the grass can heal and fill in any open areas after soil plugs are removed. Ideally, aerate the lawn with cool season grass in the early spring or fall and those with warm season grass in the late spring.
