Aeration is a simple term that means “to treat with air”. The process of aerating a lawn involves the use of equipment to perforate holes in the soil, bringing it up to be treated with not only air, but water, fertilizer and sunlight. This is a basic explanation, but there is a lot more that goes into soil aeration. You can read in detail here Aeration.
Aerating is just one of many techniques used to renovate and develop your lawn. Most of the methods to lawn restoration include aeration, but the best route is to combine strategies for maximum results. The optimal time is in late summer and early fall when lawns are really feeling the effects of summer. Amending topsoil with organic fertilizers, core aeration, reseeding post-aeration and top dressing are some common ways to rejuvenate a lawn.
