I'm looking for advice on how you would go about aerating a 24 acre cemetery. I'm planning it for the fall along with some overseeding and top dressing. I've never used a aerating machine of any kind so I don't know whats possible. I imagine I want to avoid going over any of the thousands of flat stone markers with it right? We have John Deere 335 tractors and a mini Z so I'm thinking a tow behind attachment might be the best route but will I be able to raise and lower it over these stone markers...will this big a big paine in the arse?.. Or should I just rent the walk behind machine and do it carefully. What about top dressing the place? Whats the best route to take there? I was thinking about trying to talk my boss into buying one of those R&R power turf top dressing machines or is their a cheaper way that does just as good? Any help would be appreciated.
