How to Aerate and Overseed Your Lawn

As you tackle your fall lawncare to-do list, don’t forget to aerate your lawn.

Aeration is like medicine for your grass. Grassroots need air, water and nutrients to be strong and grow deep and that’s what aeration does. The aeration process involves making small holes in the ground to allow air, water and nutrients to reach the grassroots, giving you a more robust and healthy lawn.

Watch our video above with Franklin Rental and Andy Hazelton of Middle Tennessee Lawns for expert advice on aerating.
