How to aerate your lawn

  • Written by  Danny Lipford
How to aerate your lawn

The soil in lawns can become compacted over time, resulting in weak or dying grass. Aeration is the process of punching holes in your lawn to allow water and nutrients into the soil and grass roots.

There are several ways to aerate your lawn:

Stick a garden fork about 4” into the ground, then rock it back and forth to allow the soil to receive oxygen.

Use a manual lawn plug aerator to remove plugs of soil and allow the ground to breathe and hold more water and nutrients.

Rent a gas-powered, walk behind aerator to cover an entire lawn quickly.

Before aerating, be sure to mark any sprinkler lines or electrical wires buried in your yard so they won’t be damaged by the aerator.

 Watch the video for details.
