    Just wondering how many time you aerate a year, and what times of the year. If your close to MN it would be better, but anything helps. THANKS!

    I would recommend 1x per year in the fall to all homeowners (somewhere in September or November) You still want the holes to heal in as bets they can before winter.

    If they have extremely rocky, clay, or compacted soils I would say to get on a 2x per year spring and fall.
