I came across a link here a few month back which led me over to www.landscapemanagement.net, which in-turn got me over www.athleticturf.net . Once there I was overwhelmed buy how MANY different ways there are to aerate. I guess it's the "build a better mouse-trap" theory at work. My curiosity got the best of me when I started reading about the curved spike aeration. I liked that it breaks the surface and then as the spike rotates into the earth, the curve in the spike "supposedly" puts force sideways to break the soil tension where the spike does not make direct contact. I'm thinking the potential here could be better than pulling plugs? Anyone have any personal experience with this type of aeration to share? I was also contemplating that seeding immediately after this type aeration could be pretty effective???
