Hey guys, I was wondering I really dont know how to aerate but I know what aerating is! Can you guys direct me to the correct method of aerating? .. When do you aerate? Warm weather with sun, cloudy periods? Step 1: Mow lawn Step 2: Use the aerator and aerate (Which then leaves plugs onto the ground, do you just leave the plugs on the ground or do you remove it?) Step 3: After aerating do you spread grass seed or fertlizer, if you do the latter which type of fertlizer do you use? 29-3-4? Step 4: water it in! Then you wait for results, if so how long?
