Well it got dark on me this evening. I worked hard all day and managed to finish up my route a few hours early. So I went and grabbed a Ryan Aerator. I did a single pass one direction, another single pass another direction, and a third pass diagonal to ensure I loosened up that soil pretty good. I then composted the whole lawn after the aeration. I sure like that Ryan Aerator, I think I pulled thousands of plugs across the lawn. It got dark on me, so I'll be doing a balanced fert in the morning and some irrigation to help it recover and I'll keep you updated on how it does!
