    Do any of you aerate & overseed fescue this time of year? If so how sucessful are you. I fully realize the Fall is the correct time to do this, but the man wants it now. thank you for your replies

    Best advice...is to do what we do. Spike aireate in the spring ( not core ) this seems to help with lawns that need just a bit of help getting that bit of energy below the root system. We do alot of these in the spring & core in the fall. :dizzy:

    Yes, we seed an areate (core) in the spring and fall. Like you said fall is better. Gives the grass plants time to get established before the heat of summer.
    We tell anyone that fall is better for planting. If they want new grass planted, we make it quite clear that time is running out quickly for the grass to get established and we DO NOT guarentee it to grow.
