    I aearated, overseeded, and fertilized in the early spring and my lawn looks great, really lush and green, but it could be better.....always, so I wanted to aearate in the fall too, and was wondering if it would be ok to go through the same steps again, thanks

    Next to mowing frequently at the proper height, aeration is the best cultural thing you can do IMO.

    Your soil will love you for it. It's one of the few things where too much of a good thing isn't necessarily bad :)

    If you think that the lawn could be a little better, then go for it. At least aerate. Is it not thick enough? Is that why you want to do it again?

    nothing wrong with doing it again, it won't hurt anything

    Its thick it just has spots from my dog peeing in the same spot through the winter, and I think it could be thicker b/c when the home was built the builders just used shitty city grade grass.

    Knock yourself out...the Fall is a great time to aerate and overseed.
