When to Aerate

aeratetopdressAn aeration can be performed on your lawn anytime from March 1st through early November.  Aerating in the heat of the summer is not recommended, but if you do, you will have to make sure that you don’t let your grass dry out, maybe even water it a little extra for a couple of weeks.  The more you can aerate the better.  Most lawns will do very well aerating once in the spring and once in the fall.

The important thing to remember when deciding when to aerate your lawn, is making sure you can get some water on the lawn before it gets aerated and after.  Watering before the aeration will result in deeper plugs, making the aeration more beneficial to your lawn.  Watering after is important because it gets the fertilizer started that is usually applied during the aeration, it also helps break down the plugs that are left on the lawn, and if you have aerated during a time of the season when it is hot, the water will cool the exposed root system in the holes.  So make sure you are ready to water, put down fertilizer, soil amendments, seed etc., before you aerate, since doing any of these things with an aeration will get everything where the grass needs it….in the roots.
