    Hello All,
    I am new to this thread. I have a pretty good background knowledge of the basics of lawn maintenance. This year I was away and hired lawn doctor (my lawn is now worse than its been in years). Parts of the lawn are dense with grass others are thin and patchy. I am deciding whether to aerate and overseed with a spreader or powerseed with a slit seeder. I have a couple questions.

    1. What would you folks recommend; powerseeding or aerating? I know ideally I should aerate wait a few weeks then powerseed but with winter approaching, I want to get that seed in the ground asap.

    2. Would I be able to powerseed this weekend and aerate later on in the fall (say Thanksgiving time).

    Thank you so much in advance!!
