All yards in the Carolinas should be aerated as our soils are very heavy clay and compact easily. Compaction prevents your lawn from growing thick and healthy because it limits air, water, and nutrients from reaching the root zone. We aerate our warm season lawns (Bermuda and Zoysia) in the late spring thru early summer. For cool season lawns (Fescue) we aerate in the early fall and over-seed the lawn with high quality seed. The results can be spectacular if you follow our process.
