  • Use Instructions: Prepare Bare Spots/New Grass: Remove debris, then rake the soil to loosen and smooth the top layer. Overseeding/Thin Areas: Same instructions as above but start by mowing existing grass as short as possible. Apply Spread the seed evenly using a drop, rotary or hand-held spreader according to the spreader settings. Lay down a starter fertilizer to help the seedlings grow healthy and strong. Rake gently to work your seed & fertilizer into the soil. Water Keep the soil moist! Water daily (twice a day if you have to) until grass sprouts and reaches about 3" tall. Additional Care Tips Once your grass is 1/3 taller than the recommended mowing height you may being mowing it. Avoid removing more than 1/3 of the total grass blade length at any single mowing to keep your grass thick and healthy. Increase your mowing height in summer months to reduce grass stress. Important Applying weed control products to grass prior to seedling can affect the seeds' ability to grow. Be sure to read and follow all manufacturer's recommendation and application instructions prior to applying any weed control products and prior to seeding. Additionally, do not apply any weed control products to newly seeded areas until grass is established and has been mowed at least 3 or 4 times. Once newly seeded areas are established, you can begin a regular feeding schedule.
