The Q&A Archives: Timing of aerating and rolling

Question: I live outside of Chicago and have a "lumpy" yard from frost heaves. Also, the soil seems very compacted. I was planning to both aerate and roll the lawn, but haven't found a timing guide of which to do first and what time in relation Spring weather and fertilizing.
I have seen articles that the core aerator is better and simple spike could be harmful and the lawn.
