The ideal time to aerate is during the spring, but it is not required every year. When should you aerate your lawn?
Your lawn is probably a good candidate for aeration if its:
- Gets heavy use from children and pets running around the yard contribute to soil compaction.
- Often, the topsoil of newly constructed lawns is stripped or buried, and the grass established on subsoil has been compacted by construction traffic.
- Dries out easily and has a spongy feel due to excessive thatch.
- If the thatch layer is greater than one-half inch, aeration is recommended.
