The Q&A Archives: Aerating and Dethatching

Question: When should I dethach & aerate & which should I do first?

Answer: Dethatch first, rake away all the debris and then aerate, leaving the plugs on the lawn to dissolve with rain or irrigation water. Spring or fall are both good seasons to dethatch and aerate. Or, you can dethatch now in spring and aerate in the fall.
