SPOT SEEEDING IN FALL


Identify bare spots in your lawn.


Rough the top inch or so of soil. Use a long handled cultivator if you don't have or can't find a garden weasel "tm".


Scatter your seed: the sloppier you are, the more evenly distributed they seem to fall!

Timing Tips:

  • Don't spread seed if you have recently applied pre-emergent weed killer for lawns. Check the bag for timing

  • Grass seed germinates 10-14 days after the SECOND time it gets rain!

 

'Tis the season to spot seed the questionable patches of your lawn!
