    Ive only seen or done plug aerating before and I was wondering what the difference was between plug and core aerating?

    Core and plug are the same? Do you mean whats the difference between spike and core. Core airation will culivate twice as much surface area as a spike airation.

    In my part of the country we have clay spike aerating will not do the job. Pushing a stike in the ground is like pushing your finger in to a ball of soft clay it makes a bowl that will hold water and not fracture of the ground.
