I have a few pointed questions pertaining to my own lawn. First i will describe the situation. I just bought the house and the front lawn has severe thatch to the point that there are bare areas throughout the lawn. What i would like to do is fix the lawn anyway possible. 1. Can aeration reduce the thatch issue? Do you seed after areation? Where does weed control and fertilizing fit in the scheme of things? Any help would greatly appreciated as my wife is about to kick ass for neglecting our own lawn. Thanks.
