How aerating and overseeding makes your lawn better

For an all inclusive answer, you can read our article about aerating and follow the related articles.

However, here is the gist…

Aeration removes cores and decompacts our thick clay soil. Once the cores are removed, oxygen, water, and nutrients can easily make their way into the soil. There, they are readily used by the grass.
