That's not what happened... those weed seeds wereNOT suppressed, they were killed... all of the seeds that were in the germination layer, germinated then died... in theory, there shouldn't be much left to germinate...

If you're not going to nhave your license before it's pre-m time, then you might want to dispense with the aerating and use compost to cover the seed in bare spots, instead...

You can't go wrong with compost over seed and you won't be bringing 'new' dirt with 'new' seeds to the surface for germination...

Be sure to let the client know that you aren't legally allowed to use pre-m and let her know that she may not even need it... We never pre-m turf, so don't worry too much about it...

What kind of lawn is it? shady/full sun? sandy/clay? irrigated/not irr.??
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
