Core aeration should be performed at least once yearly for all lawns, in the spring and/or fall. Aerating improves your lawn’s health and beauty, optimizes root development, and reduces thatch and associated problems. It also deepens your lawn’s root system for greater resistance to disease, insects, drought, and heat stress. Fertilizing and over-seeding are often performed in conjunction with core aeration, allowing the fertilizer and seeds to penetrate deep into the soil.
