a: Lawn aeration ~
b: acupuncture for the grass

What: We're going to talk about lawn aeration right now. Why should you aerate your lawn and what is it? Lawn aeration is like acupuncture for the grass. Soil that has breathing room is better able to absorb water, oxygen, nitrogen, and other nutrients from fertilizer. Soil that is hard packed or trampled down does not have much room, if any, for nutrients to reach down to the grass roots."
