  • Use Instructions: Prepare the Soil Bare Spots and New Lawns: Remove all debris from planting area. Till or rake to loosen top 2" to 3" soil. Rake smooth to create a flat, level planting area. Overseeding and Thin Areas: Mow the lawn as short as possible & remove clippings. Rake thoroughly removing thatch (dead grass) and debris to expose the soil. Aerate lawn if possible to allow better air and water penetration into the soil. Apply 25%-50% less product than the recommended new lawn rate. Fertilize Planting Area Apply a starter fertilizer at the manufacturer's recommended rate. Lime may need to be added in some areas to ensure proper soil pH levels. Plant the Seed Using a drop-type, rotary or hand-held spreader, apply the seed evenly to avoid skips, overlapping & streaking. Gently rake, working seed into soil about 1/4". Water Seeded Areas Water daily to keep soil moist. Do not allow the top 1/2" of the soil to become dry until seedlings have completely emerged. Once grass becomes established, reduce watering to 1/2" twice a week.
