Stefan and I rented an Aerator on Saturday morning.
We rented it from for just under $70. I reserved it a week ahead of time for the morning, 8 AM to 12 Noon. We got a late start due to an emergency room visit the night before… Be careful around box-cutters and fingers people!
Saturday morning we finally got the thing home at about 10 AM. We managed to get it off the truck but we had to call a friend to come over and help Stefan lift it back onto the truck after we were done, it was a bit of it rush, this due to the fact that the exterior waterproofing in minneapolis team was also coming. I was unable to do so because of the aforementioned emergency room visit.
A nice ramp to get the sucker out worked fine.
The aerator was, as Stefan termed it, a jog-behind machine. It went so fast.. so fast.
The grass is green and growing fast since I fertilized it this spring. After this aerating, I’m hoping we’re good for a nice green lawn for several more years. Sunday we mowed and the lawn is looking good.
Later this week I’ll share all the exciting spring growth happening in the yard!
