Planting & Growing Instructions

Improving Bare Spots

Mow your lawn closely, then remove leaves, dead grass, etc. Rake, harrow lightly or aerate the bare spots to prepare the seedbed. Conduct a soil test to be sure the soil has the proper balance of nutrients. Fertilize and lime if needed. Sow the seed and gently rake to cover. Keep the area well-watered until the seeds germinate and the seedlings have grown sufficiently to cover bare spots, then water as needed.

Care & Maintenance

Fertilize in the fall and early spring with a balanced fertilizer. Once the lawn is established, apply pre-emerge crabgrass preventer in early spring and weed and feed in midspring. Use lime when pH is low. Water twice weekly when established.
