Okay – here is a quick tip, not a full show.
Fall and spring are a great time to aerate your lawn. An aerator will break up hard compacted soil and allow water and nutrients to better reach the roots of your grass. We all know that, that’s not the quick tip. The tip has to do with when you rent an Aerator.
Lawn Aerating Problems
When you rent an aerator, there is often the previous user’s bits of dirt and grass embedded in the plugs inside tines. Those plugs can contain weeds, weed seeds, other varieties of grass, etc. When you run the aerator over your lawn, you essentially will plant whatever the previous user had in their lawn in your lawn. Not good.
Lawn Aerating Best Practice
Avoid spreading of weeds, take a moment to hose off the tines before you begin aerating your lawn.
