Does forking your lawn help?

Asked by Gavin Dunn

No! Not if you want to relieve the compaction and promote healthy roots. Aerating with a garden fork will help improve air and rain percolation, but forking a lawn won’t reduce the compaction. The garden fork is a beautiful thing – but use it for digging, not for aerating!
