What a joke! With a bunch of drunken bozos like that, makes me wonder what his workman's copm bill would be like? Glad to be a one man show if that's what the work force looks like.

"What is core aerating?

Core aerating is a simple process that removes a small portion of your grass, soil and roots. This small portion of the grass is a plug about one half inch in diameter and up to two and a half inches in length. The aerator pulls 6 plugs per square foot. Once the lawn has been aerated, the soil will begin to revitalize. Because there is a hole in the ground, rain water will reach the soil quicker. Fertilizers and mulched grass clippings will also reach the soil and roots quicker. This all means that your lawn will be more healthy. This is especially important in the spring and fall because your grass is under more climatic changes."

Not to hi-jack the thread but that is just too funny and horrible description of aerating

maybe it was easier, for the kind of clients he attracted, to understand. you don't have to be very articulate when you are dealing with people whom the price is the deciding factor.
