Spring aeration for new grass

Asked May 13, 2013, 8:51 PM EDT

Hello,

I seeded (drill/hydro) my lawn in late May last year. The clay soil in our area (Fargo, ND) has become very compacted and the heat last summer left the lawn thin.

Would I be wise to aerate this spring and over seed? Is the grass to young to do so?

Thank you!

This is the worst spot on the yard. The rest isn't much better.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
