    Is there a link that anyone can post that covers Aeration pretty well?

    There are many differing opinion about spring vs. fall, remove the cores and don't, prick vs core, do b4 and after spring ap....

    Anything worth while would be great...

    thanks in advance.

    Quick tips.

    1. Only golf courses pick up cores. Then they top dress with sand to fill holes.

    2. Fall or spring? Both are fine times. Do it when you have time, when the clients want, when you can sell.

    3. Core aeration is the most popular and cost efficient.

    4. Common sense will say to aerate before you preemengent but the scientists say it doesn't matter.
     
  5. This may help you search for answers.
    Perdue University also has some good info, but I havn't got the link.
