No One Knows...

...How Dry I Am!!!

This is how dry it's in Northern IL!!! I just did a few yards and this is what the core plugs look like.

Well, their yards will look nice next spring.

I always clean my tines after I get done aerating. And this is from the last yard. Super Dry!!!!

Hopefully the grass is thick enough that those holes don't end up with dessicated grass roots and replaced by weeds next Spring,,, or even worse dead dirt zones...

Well, if the customer puts down some fertilizer and if the rain (or snow) comes....most of the yard will come back.

The dry/dead areas may not, but that's where seeding/compost spreading/or slit seeding come into play.

It depends on what the customer is willing to spend and how much they care about their yard.
