Aerating a lawn is done mechanically removing small plugs of soil from the lawn to allow water,air and nutrients to reach the root system.Most lawns are compacted which restrict the amount of anything reaching the roots.This means you have to water much more and even then isnt as good as when its aerated.After last summer most lawn have damage and will this year also.The lawn we aerated last year have much less damage if any.There is a reason every golf course you see aerates 2 to 4 times a year.I’ts probably the 1 single thing to do to have a healthy lawn .Without it all the ,fertilizer and weed killer will not make up not aerating.
