I often read about 3-4" cores. I rarely every see them. The average middle finger is about 3" from tip to base. Enough said. But on the aeration/seeding topic, I've done this several times. Most people don't want to pay for slit seeding. If you double or tripple pass the lawn with the grass cut fairly short (shorter than normal), overseed and WATER, WATER, WATER (emphasize water), you will see results. I aerate 200+ lawns per year with several overseeds. Watered lawns germinate. Non irrigated lawns struggle. I did this for two customers last fall in the same cul-de-sac. Across the street from each other. One guy watered daily, sometimes twice. The other guy rarely watered and relied on rain. One of these lawns filled in quite nicely.
