Several of my neighbors and myself are getting together to rent a 72" Land Pride power seeder this fall to overseed our lawns. We each have about 3 acres. My question is, should I aerate a week or a few days prior? Will this gain me anything, or would I be wasting my time.
By the way my lawn is all tall fescue in southern Indiana. It is pretty well established, but there are areas that need a little work, hence the power seeder. Also, some of the yards have a lot of builders clay and curious if aerating will help breakup the soil prior to power seeding.
Thanks for the help!
