Reduce Rainwater Runoff by Aerating Your Lawn
Aeration opens up your lawn and allows water and nutrients to enrich the soil, helping your grass grow to its full potential. Here are some tips to help you successfully aerate your lawn:

Aerate warm season grasses in late Spring and aerate cool season grasses in the Fall
Use the same pattern as when you mow
If using a plug aerator, rake away soil plugs when you’re done
