Lawn Aeration

I have a few questions about aeration. I have a few customer that would like there lawn aerated. Is the best time to do them is once in the spring and once in the fall. Also here in minnesota the grass is just starting to grow. If i should do it in the spring should i wait a week or two yet for the grass to start grow so it heals up faster. One last question this yards where soded 1-2 years ago is it to early to be aerating them. Thanks, Andy

You can wait a week or so if you want, but it's not necessary. 2 yr old sod should be fine to aerate. If you can grab the sod and it stays put without ripping up easily, you're good to go.
