      Just catch like 20 squirrels and let them roam in your yard. they will eat all of the acorns up np.

        I use a lawn rake to move the acorns into piles which I then put into a wheel barrow or similar. I tend to use them as "mulch" on one of my beds. Not that many sprout after the squirrels get through with them. I tend to want to keep things simple. You can do a lot in an hour's time. My problem with acorns is they roll under your feet if you are mowing the grass and that could lead to a fall. The fact that they are present also reduces the turf area as well.

        Don't think the aerator will help a lot on the acorn issue. I rent an aerator in the early fall and over seed my fescue yard at least every other year. If I have a lot of thin areas, I will do it yearly.
