      I know the importance of aerating a lawn, but my dilemma is this: we have a sloped lot with lots of exposed tree roots; particularly in the back yard. The front yard is not quite as sloped, but it does have exposed tree roots. Could I still use a machine operated core aerator on my lawn? I have pondered on this for quite some time, and don’t really know the answer to this, but I would like to have a healthy looking, attractive lawn. I just don’t know how to get there without doing some of the recommended maintenance, like aerating.

        Hi Mary, I recommend to aerate, but just go around the root base of the trees. Also go slow in case you hit the roots. You are not likely to damage the tree if you accidentally aerate them. Go slow so that you don’t hurt yourself. An aerator can jump 12 inches if you hit a root at a high speed. If the hill is still, use a lower speed and go up and down the hill rather than side to side. This way the aerator is less likely to roll over.
