I am doing fert/herbicide and some mowing. Not a lot of people in my area are aerating for some reason. From reading here on Lawnsite it seems that it is very popular elsewhere. I see lots of the aerating guys are from much farther north than me. Is aeration more important on cool season grass? I deal almost completely with bermuda. Most of the soil around here is somewhere between sand and clay. The new subdivisions have very poor soil. Lots of front lawns are made of soil that was 8 foot deep last year. It gets lots of traffic from construction. I am thinking aeration would be something I could sell if I can convince people that they need it. It may be a hard sell since there neighbors are not doing it. The only aerator that rents near me is a walk behind bluebird or a tow bluebird about 42". Are these good ones to rent? How much better is the Plugr? What are some general guidelines for saying yes this lawn need areation or no it doesn't? Ideas from people that do areation often would be much appreciated.
