Can someone tell me what Aerating will do for my lawn??
In the 4 years we've owned this house the backyard has sunk down and compacted into highs and lows. There are tons of mole tunnels underneath.
I've just recently lost my job so have even less money to fix this. I would love it if all you garden experts could posts on what aerating would do to help? I can understand the obvious of getting air to the roots, but I don't see how it should help all the highs and lows/compactedness?
The company I worked for makes power gardening tools, but not aerators. I will need to rent one. My last day (laid off) is March 31st. I've brought home a tiller, thinking I will till the really bad spots to loosen the soil up, lay some dirt down and grass seed?
Educate me ;-) Thank you so much!
