Has anyone in the Ankeny area found a place to rent a lawn Aerator? Does anyone know the cost it would be? Also, does anyone know if it has to be done before the first frost? Thanks in advance!
It doesn't need to be done before the first frost, but you don't want the ground to be frozen either or it won't pull decent plugs. I usually aerate and overseed in September. That gives the grass seed time to germinate and get established before the winter.
Also like said above, try to get a neighbor to go in with you. Last year I think it would have been cheaper for me to hire someone to do it.
Now there are also those that say aerating is a waste of time and money.
They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.
I often use power rental provider if I need special tools I do not want to buy because I only need it once. I am not sure if you can rent an aerator there but just check their website in order to be sure if they have such tools. Nevertheless they have a lot of different power tools.
