    I know that you can start in spring to do anything with the lawns.
    I think that you have to mow it first then scarify then aerate it, you can do all those together. Then weed and feed. Cut it at a ordinary height for spring. Before weed and feed.

      What do you actually need to do? Certainly if you don't need weedkiller then skip that. The hollow toner also depends on whether your soil actually needs it.

      Overseeding was better done in autumn. Apart from that though, if you've got bare patches that need it, then better to get it done soon before the weeds get their claws in. I find without a first cut, I can't tell what needs attention though. Don't forget you also need to sprinkle a bit of topsoil over the seeds as well.
