    Well I am in Easton Pa. just aerated a lawn. Wow what a mess. Sunk etc. mud ugly. Well seeded all the areas that I made a mess. With that said have you ever run into a situation where you couldn’t work due to the lawns being so saturated you would make a mess? Going to check one more home then if it’s goimg to make a mess guess I am going home. Ugh. Hate this season.

    We got stuck once in a zoyzia yard. It cost us big time. Zoyzia is expensive and we didn’t even charge for the rest of the aeration

    I hear aerating is good money but more stuff to worry about. Hitting something underground or ripping up a nice lawn. I'll pass this year. Maybe next I'll try it out in October as mowing slows.

    Ugh.

    Hit a low spot on a property last year on our Exmark aerator that the neighboring area drained too, didn't see it was flooded in time.

    Got stuck so bad I had to tow the machine out. Huge mess! :oops:
