    Hey, Just wondering what you guys think. Wondering if after I aerate if I could apply the weed & feed or just the fertilizer and wait for the weed control. Thanks for the advice.

    Fine, as long as your not seeding.

    I have found over the years that I get better weed control if I wait awhile after aerating. Aerating stresses the weeds as well as the turf. While under stress, the weeds are not as susceptible to the herbicide, uptake or intake is slower and the results are less .
