i purchased my home last year and the lawn area is well lets say rough. i applied a heavy dose of weed killer in the fall and killed off most of the weeds and am now left with many bare areas and some sparse grass areas. i plan on aerating and seeding over the top of that. will that provide a nice bed for the seeds to grow on? i would like to establish a nice lawn and learn from this so i can provide this service to my maintenance customers (many need it believe me). i am located in the long island new york area, and plan to use a mixture of bluegrass and fescue seeds. any pointers that anyone can offer will be greatly appreciated!!
