    How often should you run an aerateror and dethatcher over a residential property?

    we usually dethach in early spring, to pull all matted leaves and sticks up and get light down to the bases of the grass plants...

    Aerate every fall usually depending on the condidtions at the property.

    I never dethatch unless it's absolutely necessary. You're much better aerating twice a year (spring and fall), but once a year (fall) is a necessity.
