Do aerating shoes really work?
Has anyone had any positive experience using aerating shoes? (You know, the shoes with the 1-1/2" spikes on them). I live in a new subdivision (house is 1-1/2 years old) and the soil is mostly red clay with backfill sand on top that I think is pretty compact from construction. I want to finally go ahead and aerate my lawn and if the shoes work good I'd rather do that then pay for a rental machine or for someone else to do it. Appreciate any feedback.
