Aeration

Aeration is a practice that can be done in either the spring or fall, and it is one of the best ways to begin a spring fertilization program.  Applications of fertilizer after aeration will move nutrients immediately into the root zone of your lawn.  This practice has shown excellent results in the density and color of cool-season turf grasses on their way to recovery from summer stresses.  Spreading grass seed after aeration is also an excellent practice for lawns that have thinned considerably.
