i dont know if this is a stupid question but when you guys aerate, how do you get rid of all the plugs? i know they are all over the lawn. do you rake by hand? isn't that very tedious and annoying, and basically damn near impossible? what are you prices and how do you figure it out??

i would like to aerate and thatch this season, being only my second year. i dont have the equipment but can rent it. i would like to offer these services for the experience for one, but if its profitable and will improve the lawn, why not. help me out guys

1. leave the core on the lawn they will decompose
2 mark all sprinkler heads, invisible fens lines, sewer caps, water and gas caps

aeration helps get rid od compaction in the soil and helps establish a healthy root system.

watering after you are finished will help hide the unsightly cores without removing them.
