Aerate Your Lawn

To get your lawn off to a good start in the spring, it is a good idea to aerate it. This increases air and water circulation in the lawn.

The best way to go about aerating your lawn is to rent a mechanical core aerator. You will run this machine over your lawn. The aerator will pull out plugs of soil which can just be left on the lawn to decompose.

You can also wear spiked shoes that will aerate your lawn as you mow. Researches report that doing so will also cut down on grub infestations in your lawn -- as the spikes kill the grubs.
