After some time, your soil will become very compact due to the heavy rains that are rained upon it. Aeration comes in to help get the nutrients it needs. When your soil is compacted it is much harder for your lawn to get the right nutrition it needs. You can aerate your yard anytime, but the best time would be around the time that it rained heavily. The two most popular times are fall and spring.
- Aeration helps with your grass because overtime heavy rain will mess with the grass.
- Aeration can usually be completed during any season, but how many times depends on your soil.
- It works by putting holes and slicing through those holes to create the aeration.
“Aeration can be done anytime during the growing season. How many times your lawn needs aerating depends on its soil compaction. The two most popular times to aerate are in spring and fall. Spring aeration gives grass plants a little extra boost and provides faster greening; fall aeration helps strengthen underground root systems while providing an excellent bed for overseeding.”
