Aerating your lawn can be very valuable to the overall health of the grass and will also make the lawn look much nicer as well. When your soil gets compacted, it affects your grass and leads to a lack of healthy color. If your lawn looks like it is stressed and/or your soil is hard and dry, aerating your lawn can be very beneficial to you. You should try to aerate your lawn when the soil is moist from rainfall or irrigation.
- Your lawn will need to be aerated when it gets compacted or when it gets damaged by kids or pets.
- You should aerate your lawn when the soil is moist after it has rained as it’s difficult to aerate dry soil.
- There are a few different aerators that you can use for your lawn such as spikes, slicers and core aerators.
“Deprived of their basic needs by compacted soil, lawn grasses struggle in stressful situations, such as heat and low rainfall, and lose their healthy, rich color.”
