Soil Compaction

I have an area that is roughly 12x50, full sun, bordered by house on 1 side and privacy fence on 2 sides. Not sure if i can attach apic via mobile. Between being full sun all day, dragging the Viking, trim mowers, wheel barrels, and 3 dogs weighing 20, 60, and 85#, the soul is hard as a rock. Before i reseed, should i use a tiller and work seed in with the garden weasel, or weasel all of it both times. In afraid the compaction is fairly deep being it's the main through way of the back yard. Suggestions? Thanks in advance!

You should probe it with a metal t bar. See its you can feel how far the compaction is. Or dig and have a look. I would till as its probably deeper than the aerator would go

Appreciate it! Pretty sure I'll till then. Seems to be about 4" deep average.
