I have a couple of customers calling and asking me to aerate and overseed their lawns. I was able to talk them into slice seeding and top dressing with compost but am worried about it being so late in October that the seed will not germinate. I would be using a tall fescue blend of seed. What do you think about doing this type of renovation at this time of year for the Northern Virginia area. Also two out of the three lawns are in very bad shape with little to no green grass at this time.
