Re: Lawn care: Fertilizer, lime, and maintenance

How helpful is aeration?
Depends a lot on the condition of the lawn. Aeration helps loosen the soil, allow water to penetrate deeper. Lets oxygen reach deeper, as well as any nutrients that have been applied (lime, fertilizer). It also exposes fresh soil to give overseeding a place to take root. A healthy lawn can benefit, but a struggling lawn may be able to make more use of it. A poorly neglected lawn may not be able to make use of it without a lot of other stuff to go along with it.
