Thatching the lawn in Spring will help remove any snow mold or dead spots caused by the Winter. The timing of this process is important. The soil needs to dry out after the snow melts, but early in the spring with the first mowing is ideal. In the Fall one of the most beneficial things you can do for your lawn is to do a core aeration. This process removes cork sized plugs from the ground and leaves them lying on the grass. It allows air, water and nutrients to get down into the soil. The fall is also a great time to get some seed down. The seed needs to make some connection with the soil, so just throwing some seed down on will result in minimal germination.
