So weather permitting I would like to do the following to my yard this year:

1.spray trimac clasic; I'm told the best time to apply is just after the first frost.

2. Aerate; if we ever get enough rain to soften the ground.

3. over-seed...??? if I can't aerate am I wasting my time and $$$, also how much seed do I drop on the yard??? It is an established yard just not as full as I would like to see it.

4. How far apart does the trimac / over-seeding need to be???

and lastly

5.how long to wait after over seeding to put on winterizer???

Thanks a bunch for any advice you can give me!! :usflag:

It is getting pretty late to seed. You might get away with it, but it is real risky considering we may actually cool off this fall.

I am not sure about the time period with the Trimec, likley it will depend on which Trimec you have. It should say on the label.

I would not even bother trying to spray, wait, then do the aeration and seed. It will be to far out, unless you really wait to seed, and do a dormant seeding.

Since we know nothing about your lawns needs it is hard to give advice.

I agree. If you are facing a winter with possible drought, go with a dormant seeding and see if you get lucky in the spring.
For that purpose a slit seeder may work out better than an aerator, and hold it off incase you go into 2 weeks of warm wet weather.
