I have one that has a T handle and 2 core tines mounted on the bottom, you step on it to push them into the ground and eject the plugs. Now THAT would take 2 weeks, but at least you would have done a good job! It is kinda handy, for my own lawn, when I have a spot that's not taking water well. I can poke a bunch of holes in the area with that.

(I bought mine when I was like 14 :rolleyes: )

we use one that you pull behind your mower its pretty much a drum with 2 1/2" spikes. Fill the drum with water and cruise around poking holes everywhere. On harder surfaces it doesnt work to well though. Needs to be heavier

The one Jason has there is good for inspecting the clients' lawns. It is what I use to see the thatch layer and how far down the water goes into the soil etc.

no wonder it took you forever, are you too lazy not to have one in each hand.

Well you think more than I do... I never even thought of doing this! not that I want to get more into the aeration biz. But if I had help I could probably upsale over half my lawn customers by pulling some plugs with it and showing them just how bad the thatch is, and if there's none, well...

When is it a good time to aerate a lawn? Also the temperature in Northern California is average about 45 to 50 degrees, Should I plant grass seeds?

Thank YOU
