I have a customer that wants her front lawn seeded. In the past I would have rented an aerator and lined a few jobs up to make up for the cost of the rental. I do not have that option, and I do not want to aerate the lawn. It isn't a very large yard, what options do I have for getting the seed into the soil instead of aerating. I thought about using a metal rake to scratch the surface, or a grass stitcher, or maybe throwing topsoil over the seed, any other options would be appreciated.
