Spread seed at the correct
rate for your species throughout the lawn with a drop, broadcast,
or handheld spreader. On bare areas, broadcast the seed two or
three times the normal rate. Cover the seed to a depth of 1/16
to 1/8 inch by raking it in and lightly rolling or firming the
soil. For summer turf establishment, a thin layer of mulch (no
more than 1/4 inch thick) can be spread over the seeds with a
peat spreader to protect the seeds and keep the soil moist.
Starter fertilizer should
be applied at planting time.
Keep the soil moist
Schedule frequent, light irrigations to keep the soil moist, but
not soaked, until the grass is well established.
