Should I Seed or Aerate First?

Why would you seed first? That just doesnt make any since. You have to prepare the ground before you seed. That means, aerate it and tear it up. Once you have done that..........seed, fertilized and water.

If you seed first, 1/2 the seed is going to get all over everywhere on the aerator and not as much will go on the lawn. Aerate first, seed and fert 2nd.
