Aerated my first job this week. I purchased a pull behind aerator from the local Princess Auto. Great deal. Hook it up to your rider, place four concrete blocks on it and drive. Worked great. One note worthy mention. I have a 13 hp Noma Canadiana riding mower. Just enough power but in the hilly areas it could have used a few more horses. I tried it out using my dad's John Deere 125 that has in the high teens for horsepower and it was effortless. My pull behind is 48" so isn't practical for small city yards. If anyone was thinking of buying one of these I'd recommend it.
