    I would Aerate and topdress the area in question before seeding. If the topdressing is not in the budget you could try a Power Raking and then an Aeration before seeding.

    Just remember not to cover the trees root system with more than an inch or two because this could create the rotting of the camber, and weaken the structure.

    Paul was the one who brought this to our attention in a previous thread. He can elaborate further.

    Good Luck this season!
