    Ok this guy I did a spring cleanup for wants an overseed done. I'm still fairly new to this. Whats the best way? I was thinking cut the grass short, verticut, spead the seed, and then rake in about 1/2 a yard of topsoil per 1000 square feet, then water. Does this sound correct?

    I've never used one before, is it a walkbehind machine like a verticut?
