The arrival of fall means that it is time to prepare your lawn for winter and beyond. Fall is the perfect time to prepare your lawn for the coming cold weather months and to ensure that your lawn comes back green in the spring. Fall is a great time because the air temperature is cooler, but the soil is still warm.
Before you begin to aerate, it is important that your lawn isn’t dry. The ground should be moist so you should either aerate the day after a rainfall, or water your lawn the day before. The most effective way to aerate your lawn is with a machine called a core aerator. The core aerator pulls out small cores of grass and soil. After aerating, spread fertilizer. Then, overseed your lawn. After overseeding, rake the grass seed in, to make sure there is good seed-to-soil contact. Finally, make sure that you are properly watering your lawn to ensure that the new grass seeds will grow.
