    Early spring and late fall is the best time to seed. Early in the morning after A heavy rain gets the best result. Be sure to water every early morning and then again after 4, but no later than an hour before sunset.

    That is not the proper way to seed.You nee to add topsoil,lime starter fertilizer seed and peat moss

  • I have had some bad batches of seed, I returned to the store for a different lot number. And yes, it was Scotts . . .

    This is the second time I've tried it. Oh well, I don't have a green thumb.

    Sometimes I think seed should be covered with a little straw to keep it in place and also from burning up.

    i got the yellow bag of "black cow" fertilize dirt. I put a thin layer over the area I was going to seed. Then put out the seed and put a thin layer over that. Watered morning and afternoon. Two weeks later....grass! My daughter had the same success! Don't give up it is well worth the beautiful green grass!

    I had this happen to me. The second time around I took the rake to the area that I used it on. I then put the seed down. Next, I put some good quality potting soil on top. Then I stomped on it before I watered. I am in Denver where it gets in the 90's in the summer. Very low humidity.

    I used that stuff and the grass is totally different then the rest of my grass. It grew I over seeded area didn't bother with top soil. I didn't rack I just watered afterwards. So it works but be prepared for strange grass that grows. I mean it's even a different shade than my grass. Oh and it did grow in shade and in blistering sun.
