Spring aeration is a waste of time and creates problems with damaging roots when the should be expanding into the soil as it warms... the best thing for you turf is to put down a layer of compost after seeding in your bare spots... your 12-12-12 fertilizer is also a waste of time in that N is adquate for lawns an the PK of the NPK are useless in most cases... make use of your soil test to REINFORCE that idea...

Too much fert and too much water are the 2 things that make "The PERFECT Lawn",,, amatuerish trash...
The first fert should NOT be applied in cool season turf until AFTER the 2nd mowing...

Rolling the ground usually causes compaction... IF you're serious about the best lawn then it would be wise to achieve the best soil...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
