Aerating your lawn is one of the best ways to make your lawn stronger and healthier. It begins by removing small plugs of grass throughout the lawn. By doing so this allows entry points through the grasses thatch layer making it easier for fertilizer, nutrients, more water and oxygen to reach your lawns roots.
It aids with stimulating root growth for the lawn in the future. This allows for a stronger and more robust lawn. Ignoring the thatch layer of the lawn can lead to poor root development.
Early Spring is one of the most beneficial times for aerating a lawn since it is one of its peak growing times of the year.
