Aerator? What do you do with your plugs?

Blow them out, rake, water? Thank you

Break them up with a leaf rake and let them return to the topsoil. They are an excellent source of nitrogen after a short time like grass clippings. You can also put them in the compost pile if you wish.

That is all I do is aeration. Leave them lay. They are full of micro organizism that help decompose thatch.
