There were two lawns that I aerated in West County in the past week and these lawns were watered perfectly for aerating. When aerating it is best to give your lawn a little soaking before aeration. This allows the tines on the aerator to pull deep plugs from the lawn. Pulling deep tines will allow better relief of lawn compaction.
It is getting towards the end of the season for overseeding your lawn, but the ground is still warm enough to promote germination. The days are still warm and will keep the ground warm enough for the seed to grow. If you are unable to overseed in the fall it is still fine to overseed in early spring.
The grass is starting to slow down and if the weather cools off and there should only be a few more lawn cuts for the season.
The leaves are starting to fall and it is time to start cleaning those leaves off the lawn. Removing the leaves from the grass in the fall will make your lawn look better, but will also clear your lawn of any debris that may smother the grass and prevent it from getting off to a good start in the spring.
