    what is the best way to go about overseeding do you get better results when you aerate it then spread seed or using a overseeder.

    Overseed with an overseeder, apply starter fertilizer and roll. You can also core aerate then overseed and roll both will give good results.

    Stop by Dege Garden Center and check our our machine. You won't even break a sweat using it. George Dege rent's our seeder in Minneapolis.
