I aerate once a year and I want to get all the benefit I can with as little to no disruption as possible. I start thinking in November as to what my problems were and what I hope to accomplish the following year. After that, I base all fertility applications based on the date of aeration. It really is quite a bit of prep that is involved for just three days of work.
All the prep in the world though can't stop a machine from breaking down or an employee calling sick. Coincidentally, before 3 years ago, we would always have issues on the lake course which had always been day two. I finally said, "F it. Adam we are doing the lake from now on first". Since then we haven't had any issues, but my fingers are still crossed!
