The Best Time to Aerate a Lawn in Indiana
Popular to contrary belief, you should not aerate your lawn during the summer months. Disturbing the soil during the warmer weather encourages weed growth and the potential for disease. Also, many people chemically treat their lawns in the summertime to prevent weeds and disease. Aerating at this point weakens the chemical barriers. September to mid-October is the best time to perform overseeding, reseeding, and fertilizing tasks that coincide nicely with an aerated lawn. And the cooler temperatures encourage the grass to develop better root systems instead of focusing on blade growth.
Aeration also helps your lawn heal from the stresses of summer. Frequent foot traffic, excessive heat, and dry conditions take a toll on your turf’s well being. At the same time, aeration prepares the ground for the upcoming bitter temperatures of winter, which are notorious in Indiana for being hard on a lawn’s health. Therefore, the best time to aerate a lawn in Indiana is early fall.
