    Hey guys I want to overseed my front yard, what do you recommend first? I usually aerate and then overseed never just overseed so what is the best set-up to help the seed germinate? Its been about 10 days since I put down my crabgrass pre-emergant so I think I should be okay. What are your inputs?

    If you have Pre-M down you'll be wasting your time with seeding your lawn . Wait about six weeks depending on the weather if it's cool weather you might have to wait longer .

    My pre-m says wait 8 to 12 weeks. I agree though, little to no germination with pre-m down. Dont waste your time.

    Crafty.. you better wait 'til the fall. Pre will hold up for about 10 weeks. By then the heat of summer will be here.
