    Just wondering, is it best to dethatch first, then aerate, the fertilize and last roll the lawn. i'm not sure if this is the right procedure.

    Down here some of the guys will dethatch in the spring and aerate in the fall. I dont see why you want to dethacth AND aerate a lawn unless you have a seriuos thatch problem. I would recommend an aeration in the fall, interseed (if needed) and fertilize.
    I will mow the lawn first before aerating.
    Hope this helps. I dont know what your situation and conditions are up there in Canada so I can only tell you what works down here.
