Aerate and seed in late August early September. Spray weeds late October early November.
Look in fall of 2013 rutgers has a lot of good turf classes.

Dimension .125G in NJ in July

In the spring I use speed zone or surge for broad leaf. Than I use q4plus and then spot treat

Jc is right. If you spray weeds in the fall you will have almost no problems in the spring (except new customers). Perhaps follow up with a June weed control to reduce the summer weeds like: spurge, purslane, nutsedge, and perennials like ground ivy, violets and clover. This sounds a bit like the dealer devised this program at Lesco/JDL. If you don't really have so many cinchbugs--stay with Merit or Merit with fertilizer in July.
Fertilizer will not normally hurt new seed--no worries.

Also keep in mind that the dimension and the fert below it is the combination product. Also with the allectus. I'm trying to bring down my per app price so I'm labeling combination products as two.

Doing only hot spots seems like the same labor and over head. Are The savings in product worth the effort?
keep in mind allectus has half the imidicloprid in it.
whu not use a straight app of fert and bifentherin?
still dont see why your going out in july with a pre emergent i would use a post emergent for breakthru

I was thinking of puting down my first dimension later if we had a cold snap the same as last year.

I don't know may is late and I'm in MA, July I'm spraying post emergent every day, so dimension has to be before you are able to spray plants
