The Q&A Archives: aeriate (continued)

Question: After scavaging for info for aeriating my lawn due to neglected lawn care from previous home owners, I discovered this information :
The soil under your lawn can become compacted from foot traffic, and compacted soil excludes air (which roots need). You can fix compacted lawns by aerating every 2-3 years in either the spring or the fall. If you rent a power aerator, it will dislodge plugs of soil. Leave the plugs on the lawn (they'll decompose and break down in the rain). After aerating, spread a thin layer of sand or organic mulch over the top of the lawn and then water deeply.
In refference to this , may I re-seed my lawn after aeriating it ?

Answer: Aaron,

Yes you can but don't spread sand after seeding as it will cover the seeds more than you would like.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
