Any recommendations in BCS. I have aggieland green and they did a liquid aeration, but i actually need to change the composition of my soil. Need some sand to break up the clay.

DIY not an option?

I think you can rent a walk behind aerator (one that actually pulls cores) from Home Depot for around $60. Should just be a couple hours unless you have a massive yard.

Do you have St. Augustine or Bermuda? It's much harder to level St. Augustine since it's so thick and hard to cut low.

Edit: $69 for 4 hours or $99 for a day. Brenham HD has one, maybe an equipment rental place here would have one.

I dont have an issue renting an aerator and aerating myself, but i really would rather just pay someone to haul in sand and level. Too much work for me and dont have the time. And yes I have bermuda

I understand. I've done research on leveling my own and two years later still never had the time to do it.

I'd give the good folks at Producers Coop a call. They are a font of all kinds of lawn care and gardening wisdom.

I decided to level my yard myself 2 years ago and it kicked my ass. I plan on doing again this year but will hopefully hire a couple of high school kids to do the heavy lifting. The leveling process was not hard, it was moving 6 yards of sand that wore me out.
