Raking

Aerating Your Lawn

When Should You Aerate?

What Does Aerating Do?

  • Test the soil to see how balanced it is and determine what type of fertilizers are required.
  • Add some to your lawn, trees, and perennials to ensure they have adequate nutrients.

  • Ensure nothing becomes waterlogged.

Gardening Care

What Extra Steps Should You Take to Help Your Garden?
