    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.

    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.

    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
