last year we had the driest fall on record and i didnt do a single aerating. its been my understanding not to do aerating in the fall. because it may cause weed growth. i'm not sure i have the facts straight on this. in the past i always told people to aerate in the fall. id seem less likely to talk them into dethatching(they had aerating on the brain). it would seem they never would call back in the fall, or i would call them and they lost their motivation and were no longer interested. its almost easier $ for me to aerate. i have some nice aerating equipment. should i be accepting aerating in the spring maybe say something like if you havent aerated in a few year i would do the aerating.
