In case you are wondering when the best time to aerate and seed your lawn, look no further. The answer is now, and here a just a few reasons why.
- Aeration alone relieves soil compaction and removes thatch allowing for better air and water movement through the soil
- Aeration or the opening up of soil helps create a proper seedbed (seed to soil contact is key). Spreading seed over your lawn or on bare spots is ineffective
- This time of year is mild enough for seed germination. Spring is as well, however spring is always followed by a hot and humid summer which usually kills most new grass plantings
- If your lawn is thin or has bare spots, the only way to thicken the lawn up is aeration and seeding. Fertilizing will not improve turf density.
