Compost topdressing I would do now; even out the lawn surface and start getting some humus in that surface zone. Core aerate now before the hots hit, topdress, and wait until fall for slit seeding...
WHAT topsoil? I saw little evidence of ANY...

Sounds good Al; moving forward...
Don't know why you are surprised about the longer cut; both Paul and I have unequivocally stated time and again that this is the number one tip yo organic lawn control. Why do you think all the rest of the industry wants you to cut at two inches? So they can sell you all their chemicals!
Wow! So are these new pictures taken just one month after the first? If so I am a believer in this method! Well I was before - but now even more so! We have a lot of decaying grass from mowing clippings being left on the lawn. I know that it good for the lawn to some extent but since it has been wet now mushrooms are popping up everywhere.
Am I correct that Paul doesn't think any type of aerating is a good idea? Other than the worms taking care of it?
How many holes did you end up digging Northwest Al?
If I don't have my own compost what do I do for the half and half mixture in the holes?
