Hey there, it's late summer here and i'm starting to see some of my neighbors aerate their lawns. I thought you should do this during the spring. Is now a good time to aerate?
The best time to aerate is during the growing seasons. If you have a cool season grass like a fescue to bluegrass then those growing seasons are usually in the springs and early fall to late summer. Now is the perfect time to start aerating. In general you want to aerate this time of the year about 45 days before the first freeze.
