Thrive vs Liquid Aerator

Need some help here…I have a lawn in north Los Angeles With warm season grass which I believe is St Augustine. It is dying in patches. How does Thrive compare to a liquid Aerator that I can purchase. Is it the same?

Skip Thrive completely. Overpriced IMO.
You can get what you need for around $100 that has 4 different products, that will last two years (for a 5000 sq ft yard). MUCH CHEAPER OPTIONS out there.

Give this a try for liquid Aerator
[N-Ext] Air-8 (Google it, you’ll find links. Works wonders! The whole N-EXT package is great, and a hell of a lot cheaper than “thrive”)
