    Got another ? here. What is the best aerator and thatcher to buy? I don't know a whole lot about them. Do they make aerators that don't leave the grass looking like there's dog poop all over it? What do I do with that?

    I am assuming you mean de-thatcher and I have always heard about ryan aerators have been good, although a pain in the ass to use. You will def get a work out. There are two different types of aerators, spike and core. Spike just compacts the soil and makes a hole, while core pulls the cores, which you call dog poop. These will decompose into the soil in a week or so, just leave them.

    I have a Classen aerator and a Ryan dethatcher/power rake. I have run a ryan aerator before and I think it was built better then my classen is.
