These are plugs, not a full re-turf. Why aerate the soil thats been put down to fill low spots? These plugs are brand new so no need to aerate those either. I just cannot see a need for aeration at all! Fert and water is all thats needed and mow when the plugs are like 2" or so. Dont even worry about reel mowing until theres a full covering of lawn and re top dressed a few times.
