SEEDING RATE: For new lawns, use 6-8 pounds per 1,000 square feet. Rake into the top 1/4 inch of soil, water daily or as needed to keep the soil surface moist until the seedlings reach 2 inches tall.
General Grass Seeding Tips:
Timing: Seed in the Spring or Fall when the soil temperature is 60 to 70 degrees
Preparation: Ensure adequate drainage of your site. Cultivate 4-6 inches with topsoil. Incorporation of a starter fertilizer will help provide proper nutrients for early growth. Keep seedbed firm, not fluffy.
Seeding: Using a drop spreader or a broadcast spreader, spread half the seed lengthwise over your site, then the other half crosswise over your site. A recommended seeding rate is listed on the seed tag.
Moisture: To help promote good seed germination, keep the newly seeded area moist at all times.
Maintenance: Mow to encourage grasses to spread. Do not mow to less than 3 inches in height. Overseed bare spots to minimize weed growth. Spring or Fall are excellent times for overseeding.
