Prepare: Bare Spots / New Grass: Remove debris, then rake the soil to loosen and smooth the top layer. Overseeding: Same instructions as above but start by mowing existing grass as short as possible.
Apply Spread the seed evenly using a drop, rotary or hand-held spreader according to the spreader settings. Rake gently to work your seed & fertilizer into the soil.
Water: The most important step! Keep the soil moist! Water daily (twice a day if you have to) until grass sprouts and reaches about 3: tall. After establishment, Smart Seed premium grade grass seed will require up to 30% less water year after year vs. ordinary seed.
Additional Care Tips: Once your grass is 1/3 taller than the recommended mowing height you may begin mowing it. Avoid removing more than 1/3 of the total grass blade length at any single mowing to keep your grass thick. Increase your mowing height in summer months to reduce grass stress.
