Hi, I am trying to determine what is better to do, slit seeding or core aeration. A lawn service company will come out and fertilize, give us free lime, and for the seeding, will do core aeration.

A landscape company we recently had said they would seed our lawn and do the slit seeding.

With all the research I have done, half seem to suggest one and the other half go with the other option. What is better?

We have about 2600 square feet of lawn and it is really our back yard that needs the most help. Lots of dead areas where there is no grass or it is really bad. We just want to make sure we choose the right option. I want a nice looking yard with normal green grass.
