Clients often fertilize and over seed year round but may not see the results they are trying to achieve. Throughout time the soil in your yard will become compacted from mowing each week and children or dogs playing on the yard, which will make it difficult for your yard to stay healthy. If the property has several trees around your property, fallen leaves will mulch up and further cause your soil to be compacted.
Aeration is needed by grasses for optimal growth. Aerating allows oxygen and nutrients to permeate the soil which can then be easily absorbed by the grasses. It facilitates the interaction between the air and the soil in exchange of nutrients and other essential elements.
A well-aerated soil allows fertilizers and other feeds to penetrate the soil easier and reduces soil compaction which is detrimental to healthy grass roots.
To aerate your soil properly, timing is key and the best time to aerate the soil is during fall. Aerate the soil first then apply fertilizers, pesticides and feeds which can easily permeate the soil better through the soil openings.

There are grass varieties which survive heat and drought better and even spread out more evenly. These are the varieties that could be introduced to reseed the lawn and have it looking green and healthy irrespective of the weather condition or heat.
