I am going to aerate and overseed a lawn. Would spreading a starter fertilizer be anything but good?:usflag:

Slit seeding it or top dressing after overseeding will give you better germination rates. Starter fert will have no negative effect, should aide in germination. Keep it moist.

Great, thanks! Also, I''ve never combined my fertilizing (different lawns) with my aeration, but would like to in order to make 1 less trip, any negatives to that?

As long as the soil needs what your putting down then there is no problem putting it down at one time.....just no pre-m obviously
