We just moved to Wake Forest this summer into a new house. The yard is not established at all (mostly weeds right now). Would anyone have any recommendations for a company who is reasonably priced to treat the soil (or shall I say red clay?!) initially, and then aerate and re-seed for the Fall?

Thanks!

I would talk to your neighbors and see who they use. I would also strongly consider going in with your neighbors and renting an aerator yourselves from Home Depot or Ace for the afternoon and splitting the cost. You could save yourself at least 1/2 the cost if you do it yourself. If that isn't an option, talk to your neighbors and get recommendations.

I agree with this in theory, but an aerator is not the easiest machine to handle under any circumstances and if the ground is dry and hard packed it can be a LOT of work. I've done the neighbors sharing one for the day route and it about whipped us.

Hanna might make it easier for you, though...
