I was watching Gardening By The Yard with Paul James on HGTV over the weekend. He was talking about what people (homeowners) could be doing in the winter to get their yard ready for spring. And he said that winter is a great time to aerate your lawn so that it will be ready for fert (and whatever else) in the spring. Since spring is a pretty busy time for people in our industry, and winter often means sitting around doing nothing (I know, not everybody), seems like a good way to spread out your work load. This would certainly free up some of your time in the spring and allow you to take on other work (mulching, etc.). Any thoughts? Just thought I'd throw it out here for discussion. BTW, obviously we're not talking about when the ground is frozen or snow covered. For the last couple days it's been fairly warm around my way. Gound is soft and damp.
