    Just received a flyer about "aerify", which is touted as being better than lawn aeration. Anyone had any experience with it or simular products. They have a web site; www.natureslawn.com .Thanks.

    Sounds interesting. Pretty much like any "natural" program that adds to the soil. I wonder if his product is homemade or available commercially.

    Sure the benifits are Great, added to a spray tank this doubles their income.Now they can feed and "Aerify" in a single treatment. or as an additive to a graular application. anytime you can increase the microbes its better than mechanical aeration, espescially with clay soils.

    So, the big question. Has anyone tried it and does it work???. Would love to add on another service like that. Perhaps i'll post it in the other forum too incase someone there has tried it.

    Don't know about other states, but you can not even buy it in Wyoming, at least a couple of years ago you couldn't. A liscensed applicator could get it in Idaho and use it in Wyoming though. Just mentioning this as a heads up to check with your state or county as to if you can use it ot not.
