Is it to late to aerate?

    I need to aerate a bunch of lawns, but my schedule is slammed and I'm having a hard time getting it in. Now I'm worried it may be getting to late in the year.

    I live in western oregon, and the last couple days have been in the 90's. It should cool down again, but I was just wondering what you guys think???
    Is it to late?????
    thanks jon

    I am in Maryland and the weather is about 75 degrees. Next week I will be aerating half a dozen properties.

    I scheduled them all a few weeks ago and I should see the results in a few more weeks.

    Hopefully all goes well.

    We aerate all season long. The only problems we see is the lack of the customers ability to water both prior to and after the service is completed.

    If soil moisture is already in sufficient supply we ignore the watering before and after issue. That is only for dry conditions.

    Search on the web for 'Professional Turf Center'. They are in Tigard, OR. They have a calendar on that kind of stuff or you can call and talk to very knowledgeable people.
