Over seeding
« on: June 12, 2018, 12:35:52 PM »
Is spreading lawn seed with a spreader over you entire lawn a waste of money/seed? I know working it in with a rake or top dressing with soil is even better. I did this earlier this spring and havenít seen much happen. Opinions.

Nope....on an established lawn, Coop. That's the only way I fertilize, I always mix them together.  (except for the midsummer fertilization) Fall and Spring are dandy times. Gotta say that's the reason my lawn stays so thick. Started doing this about 7-8 years ago, and I sure can tell the difference. I'm talking about on an established lawn, right before a rain, though. If you mean on bare soil, ya, lots of wash away and free bird food....gotta lay that soil over the seed, or have the ground raked up loose, do a drop spread of seed, then some type of cover over the seed/soil.

Itís an established lawn that has been neglected. I mowed then spread the seed with a fertilizer spreader. Later I fertilized. Iím trying to get the weeds under control, and thicken the grass. Maybe I wonít see much this year. Iíll keep at it. Thatís a good idea doing both at the same time.

Worked for me! This stretch was dirt and crap two years ago after the GAS CO dug up the entire stretch in huge chunks.  :angry2:

Looked good last week!  :smiley:
