Do you guys cut the grass shorter before aeration when overseeding??

Always.

It allows you go further without mowing again after reseeding. You don't want to mow right after reseeding but you don't want your seedlings covered with 8" long fescue neither.

same here and the shorter grass allows you to see you aerating pattern better

I don't..I'll cut the grass the day before I aerate....and then again on the regular schedule as it needs it...
