I moved into my property about a year ago and have been attempting to improve my lawn.The site is very poor gravelly soil,so I have obtained a load of topsoil for the remainder of the garden and to spread on the lawn.I planned to aerate,spread the topsoil and reseed in the Fall but I have read articles which were negative about aeration, as a waste of time and money.What is your advjce?Thank you!
