Aeration

  • Make sure all sprinkler heads are marked clearly.
  • Late spring and early fall is the best time to aerate. (Soil should be moist for best results.)
  • This is the best way to reduce thatch.
  • Aeration improves drainage and opens up the thatch, allowing water and nutrients to reach the roots of the grass.
  • This practice improves root growth, and is especially important on lawns that receive a lot of foot traffic.
