Aeration services are best performed in early spring or fall. This allows your grass time to fill in open areas from soil plugs being removed. There are two main types of tools used for aeration, a spike aerator and a plug aerator. Spike aerators look like a fork and are used to poke holes in the ground, while a plug aerator removes plugs of soil and grass from your lawn. Plug aerators are by far the most effective aeration tool.
Aeration helps resolve issues with drainage, strengthens your turf, promotes root growth and helps new seeds to germinate. If you want beautiful lush grass in the coming spring, don’t skip this essential step in lawn care health.
