Hello, Connecticut Shoreline here. New lawn from seed late last year and this year I fought a ton of problems from summer patch (verified by the state testing lab), hard crappy clay soil the contractor used (I applied Gymsum to help this), sparse lawn at beginning of season (reseeded in spring with Siduron applications the first few months). Anyways... I was so focused on controlling the summer patch I wasn't able to get the weeds undercontrol and now I have alot of various weeds all over my lawn. My questions are: 1. When is the best time time aerate and power/slit seed - I know fall... but when?? Am I waiting for leaves to change, a certain average soil temp, a certain date, etc... 2. What should I do now or in fall about the weeds? I just applied Merit + Fertilizer (no weed control) 2 weeks ago. Should I do post emergence weed control in fall if I'm going to seed? Should I just worry about it in the spring? 3. What else should I be doing (or considering) for the rest of the year... lime? winterize? etc... This year is the first year I've started focusing on my lawn and really want to get on the right track. Thanks everyone in advance - you are all awesome.
