Lawn or core aeration is the process of removing small plugs or cores from the lawn. This process is done with a machine called a core aerator.
Most lawns need core aeration annually. However, heavily used lawns, or those growing on heavy clay or subsoils may benefit from more than one aeration each year.
Aeration is considered one of the most beneficial and recommended applications for many reasons.
