As a general rule, aeration should occur when the lawn is dormant. The best time to core aerate your lawn is early in the spring or late fall before new growth begins. Optimal soil temperature for effective aeration will vary, depending on the type of grass and time of year you are trying to accomplish it.
How deep do I need to take my cores?
Cores should be at least 6 inches deep for good results with most turfgrasses growing in North America. For all-season turfgrasses such as Bahia Bermuda and Zoysia that grow well throughout much of North America, cores can reach depths up to 8 inches without compromising germination rates. If you have an unusual situation where core depth becomes an issue, feel free to contact us for assistance!
