With the weather this year ;)

I had planned to have mine done first of Oct as I am in the south and stays warmer longer. However last two nights have been lows in the 50's and high's yesterday and today in the 70's.

So, thinking about moving mine up to mid sept.

Anytime after the hard heat of summer is over. Even if you get a hot day now and again it will not bother. Also you can aerate right up to hard freeze if you want to. It will work best if you get some water on it so the ground is soft before you start. but not muddy just damp as you want to tear the ground a little not just mush the tines through it.
