We have had .07 inches of rain over the last month. Needless to say, the ground is bone dry here in southeast Pa. I have all my non irrigated lawns on hold for aeration. Yesterday, I drove by a 2 man Scotts crew with 2 walk behind Ryan aerators doing a job on a 8k sq ft lawn with mature trees. I bet they were getting at least 1/4 inch cores. I kinda felt bad for the 2 guys that were sent out to the job. Those people are really getting their moneys worth on that job. I don't feel bad for them, they chose Scotts. Ya gotta laugh.
