I am getting ready to aerate my lawn tomorrow and was wondering if there is anything that i should do along with this. I am planning on spreading some compost onto my lawn once im finished. i have heard that dropping redworm eggs into some of the plug holes before tossing will help alot. but one thing is can you have too many worms in your yard as i can only find them by the 1000. How long should i wait to water as im planning on doing this on tuesday and no rain is coming till friday or early saturday. how should i go about mowing my lawn. i was thinking of mowing at about 3 - 3.5" before starting anything else. does this sound about right or am i going about this wrong?
