Lawn Aeration and overseeding
My lawn service was supposed to aerate and overseed my yard in the East End of Louisville on 10/8 but ran into equipment problems. Now they've got me scheduled for 10/23. Is that too late? Thanks

You can aerate your yard but it's late to apply seed for establishment before winter. It all depends on the weather. Here is our information on lawns:

These links are to what we call our lawn or turf pack, basically the major concerns and actions we need for lawn care in Kentucky.
