    Nice plugs...I hope you waited for the frost to disappear before aerating.

    What is the weather like where your at? It's pointless aerating here. People would look at me like I was nuts. However, i did see Scotts still out aerating.

    The soil on the end of those plugs looks like tar! I wish our soil looked more like that. How deep into the plugs were the roots?

    Some went about 3/4 of the plug others about 1/2....

    EJD Lawnpride, YOu can aerate till it freezes if you like. The soil will move all winter with the freeze and thaw cycles. A late fert app after you aerate will jump start the lawn in the spring. I have done that here in Nebraska and it works.
