    No lie I saw a guy doing a comercial property today with a lawn air 5 there was about a half an inch of snow on the ground. Isn't doing aeration this late causing more damage than good.

    Frostbite on the root system is never good and that's what will happen.

    Giving the guy the benefit of the doubt, if soil temps are still high and it was a light snow, the melting snow could have actually softened the ground allowing the aerator to get better penetration. However, I'm guessing that where you're at soil temps are not high and he's just bouncing around all over the place.

    Might get good penetration, but what good is it if the grass is not actively growing?

    Guy probably got paid already for it and doesn't want to refund the money.
