How To Aerate Your Yard

lawn careIf your lawn is in need of aeration, here are some tips on how to do it:

  • Make sure the soil is moist enough.  Aerating the day after a rain shower or watering your lawn the day before is advised.
  • Most aeration machines cover only a small percentage of soil surface per pass, so make multiple passes over the most compacted areas. 
  • The excavated soil plugs should be allowed to dry and then broken up to give your lawn a uniform, clean appearance. 
  • After aerating, it’s important to continue basic lawn care practices such as proper fertilizing, mowing and watering.
