You may change the appearance of an old yard into a beautiful garden if you're dedicated to spending some time working on it. There is one simple thing you need to do to enhance the condition of the soil: aeration.
Aerating your gives life to your yard soil so grass, plants and trees can grow healthy and strong. Do these 2 simple tests to find out if your lawn needs aerated.
Test#1: Find the Moisture in Your Soil
You don't need fancy equipment, just using your hands you can start by checking the condition of your soil. The soil should be moist enough, and this could be found by digging into the ground and seeing how wet it is.
To find the moisture content of the soil in your yard, crush it with your hand. See if there are any drops of water dripping down from the soil. If there are any, it characterizes that the soil is just excessively wet however if your palm feels wet without any drops of water, it suggests that the soil is in its perfect condition.
You can use any lawn aerator for aerating your yard. However, the most powerful kind is the one that can shift a lot of soil at a time. It's suggested you look at the manual guide before handling this machine. Most Home Improvement Stores have lawn aerators for rent.
