    Can aerate really anytime. After going to several U of A semianrs I never dethatched in the fall, only durring active growth because the plant can recover better when actively growing. I did two test areas and found less spring root dieback (just as professor said I would) and got thicker lawns doing it this way. I had to see it to believe it.
