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.

  1. Aeration alone relieves soil compaction and removes thatch allowing for better air and water movement through the soil
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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.
