Lawn aerators make holes in the lawn extracting plugs of soil. This helps oxygen reach the soil which allows it to breathe.
Water and nutrients are then better able to reach the soil and help it grow.

Are there different types of lawn aerators? Does it matter which one I buy?

A: There are 2 main types of lawn aerators;
1. Core/Plug aerators
2. Spike aerators

It really depends on whether you are dealing with soil that is heavy clay or sandy etc. so you need to know your land type before you buy.

Should I water the lawn before I aerate it?


I would recommend watering the lawn the night before and then to aerate the next day. This is especially essential if your lawn is really dense, but it helps even if the lawn is not dense.

Just put in a new moen kitchen faucet, why does it have hardly any water pressue?


You might have a clogged aerator screen. Remove the aerator from the faucet and see if the flow is normal. You can rinse the aerator off if it's clogged. It's also possible the stops (shutoff valves) aren't open all the way. Sometimes, if they're old, they don't turn on fully again after you shut them off to put in the new faucet. If you still have low pressure after removing the aerator, you may need to replace the valves.

I don't know if the instructions mentioned it, but it's good practice to remove the aerator and run a faucet to flush the water line after installing it. There's usually a lot of debris that comes through at first. That's usually why you'll have low pressure in a new faucet.

Lawn mower wont pick up the clippings


if you have ever mowed your lawn when it was wet, you might have formed a clog in the pipes to the clipping catcher. Make sure that the mower is OFF (so you don't chop off your hands) and take a look at the bottom of the mower -- if there is a lot of grass stuck there, you probably have a clog. Clean out the grass from the bottom of the mower, and remove the bag. Make sure that the opening from the base of the lawnmower to the bag is totally clear and give it another shot.
If it is not this, are the clippings just clumping up on the ground as you mow the lawn? or are they being thrown around the yard like they have no direction as to where to go?
If the connection between the mower and the bag are clear, and the grass is just clumping as you cut it, there might be some sort of blockage that you did not notice, keeping the clippings from going where they are supposed to. Make sure you have your bag hooked up properly, and that the clippings have a clear path to the bag. If there is still no love on it, you will probably have to see a repair professional so they can give it a good look (it's tough to resolve complex issues over the internet).
If the grass is not clumping when cut, but is being tossed in all directions instead of being directed to the bag, then you will have to take it in for service -- this would seem to indicate that the mower blades have somehow become distorted and the air flow that you need (to direct the clippings) is not being directed properly. A professional repair person would have to have a chance to see the mower in action to find out what is wrong (once again, it's difficult to fix something you can't see). Good luck ... hopefully it's just a clog (it happens to me all the time).

After emptying the grass from the storage on the back of the rider, when I start to mow again, the grass that is in the catcher from the deck to where it shoots out, gets clogged and will not move on to...


Clean out your chute also and don't let the catcher get so filled up, check it for readiness to empty more often.Don't cut wet grass that tend to stick and cause trouble. Good Luck...709
