Great for new lawns, repair, and reseeding.
Planting grass seed is a simple procedure. Prep the area first by raking the soil to loosen it up, spread your grass seed at the proper rate, and then lightly cover it with a quality soil, such as Scotts® Turf Builder® LawnSoil™. Follow that up by feeding with Scotts® Turf Builder® Starter® Food for New Grass, to help get your new grass seedlings off to a great start.
As you would with any grass-seeding project, keep your new grass moist by watering once or twice a day until you see it grow tall enough to mow. Then you can cut back to a normal watering schedule. Remember: when you plant grass seed around trees, the trees are hungry and thirsty, and will compete with grass for available water and nutrients. Be sure to regularly feed the grass around trees, and be a bit more generous when watering.
