Should Grass Be Aerated In Spring After Winter With Lots Of Snow

Question From: Kimberton, Pennsylvania, United States
Q: Nancy: Even though I aerofied in the fall, should I do it this spring given the amount of snow that we had in Pa and the effect that it had on matting down the grass? Thank you, John

A: If you have clay soil and can afford it, by all means go for it. The matted grass will perk up given time. Here is Michigan we are a month behind do to the bitter cold weather. Don't try to rush things by dosing the grass with fertilizer. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
