Question: What is the best way to get the dead spots on my lawn growing again? Do i need to till the spots or just aereate the soil?What is the best way to do this if needed?

Answer: Kevin,

I suggest a light raking or tilling and then resodding or plugging the spots if they are larger than a foot or more in diameter. The follow good lawn care practices to maintain a dense healthy turf. If the spots are about a foot or less in diameter then the resodding of the areas is not necessary.
