it seems like a lot of people offer aerating and seeding done simultaneously, like this is the way to do it...trugreen does it, therefore it's probably not the best method...i can see a shallow aerating simply for seed to soil contact...i have a hard time believing seeding into a 3 or 4 inch hole does much, especially after germination...slit seeding is the best method, but done with aerating is best...i agree that aerating for the purpose of aerating is for decompaction, not for seeding...

i'm interested to see how well the grass does in the deeper holes...i guess it makes for deep roots, that's for sure, and deep roots are always a good thing...
