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. Incorporating a starter fertilizer will help provide proper nutrients for early growth. Keep seed bed 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: Do not mow less than 6 inches in height. Overseed bare spots to minimize weed growth. Spring or Fall are excellent times for overseeding.
