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.
