Aeration is key to a great Indiana lawn
A HOLE-Y YARD IS A HEALTHY YARD
Aeration may be overlooked when trying to restore a lawn but is vital to bring it back to health. Core aeration is done on turf areas as a means of reducing turf compaction, reducing thatch buildup, improving the infiltration of water/nutrients, enhancing heat and drought stress tolerance, encouraging deeper roots, and creating an environment where grass seed can have direct contact with the soil.
In most cases, the best time to core aerate your lawn in the fall when conditions allow for deeper soil penetration. Core Aeration and Overseeding are the best combination.
