Aerations

Not complaining but i am ready to be done with aerations. We have been aerating everyday since the middle of August. We still have a couple of weeks left. Anyone else get to this point? Love the $ but i am just ready for the easy spray route!

Got around 50 lawns left to do. I had at least 20 people who regularly have it done said no, money is tight.

Get over it. You get to use the lawnsolutions ride on and full hydro. Try running the good old ryan walk behind aerators. Drum style. Done 120 lawns so far. Only 15 left, thank god.

We got all our aerating done last week. We bought a new Z-Rator to put on our Walker mower and it worked fantastic. Only had to use the old push Ryan aerator on 2 yards. Not nearly as tiring and was looking for more once we started.

I love having my guy aerate. We've done close to 200 this fall. Wish I had another 100. We use a turfco turnaer 6 with a chariot. Works out well

i want more, but could not do any cuz of drought. i love them, never tired of the bottom line after a day of aerating. i still have 10 left that are able to water, but have another 10 that the lawns are too large to water. that is pissiing me off.

A retired guy aerates? How long before he keels over?
