    I've got an aerate, pre-m and lime job this weekend...I was wondering if it would be OK to apply pre-m and lime first and then aerate. Figured it'd make it a lot easier to push the spreader rather than aerating first and having to push it over all those plugs which will probably not give a good broadcast 'cause the wheels will be bouncing around. Thanks

    I have never had a problem pushing any kind of spreader over after aerating? not sure what kind of spreader you were using, but maybe that is one reason. I like to think by spreading afterwards, some of it naturally falls into the newly made holes from aerating, and prefert to aerate first, even though with first rain, hopefully it makes it there anyways.
