When Is The Best Time To Aerate Lawns

?

Aeration is most beneficial when done in the spring or fall, but it will do no harm if you aerate during periods of rest. In fact, a period of rest for your lawn is a good idea every six to eight weeks. Aerating also helps keep down weed growth and pest problems by providing more oxygen to the root zone. You can aerate with a special tool that cuts into the soil around the base of grass clumps and plant roots without disturbing them too much.
