Planting and Growing Instructions
New Seeding Method 1
Prepare the soil for seeding by tilling then smoothing and raking the lawn to the point of having a smooth, firm seedbed. Plant one bag of Grass Seed & Mulch mixture according to the coverage rate on the package. The seed and mulch are blended to give the correct seeding rate for each of the two components.
Lightly rake the seedbed to cover the seed and the mulch no more than 1/4'' deep. Mulch the seeded area lightly with wheat straw or pine straw. Water daily for 30 days, keeping the seedbed moist at all times. The grass plants will emerge, and over a period of one growing season should form a sod. On poor soils or in unfavorable growing conditions, it may take two growing seasons to completely form a sod.
New Seeding Method 2
Spray the existing grass with a nonselective herbicide labeled for lawn use. Wait approximately 7 days to ensure all grass is killed. On spots not completely dead, respray with herbicide. Wait approximately 7 days after the final spraying and plant Grass Seed & Mulch according to the coverage rate on the package, making certain the seed and mulch are spread evenly across the area. Aerate the area thoroughly using a checkerboard pattern. Using a standard lawn mower, mow the dead grass close to the ground allowing the clippings to remain on the ground as a mulch cover. Water daily for 30 days, keeping the seedbed moist at all times.
An alternate method of seeding is to mow the lawn closely, then aerate the lawn well with a spike aerator or similar tool. Plant the seed as directed in methods 1 or 2, then aerate or rake lightly to cover the seed no deeper than 1/4'' deep. Water daily for 30 days, keeping the seed moist at all times.
Care & Maintenance:
Fertilize in early spring. Water weekly for best appearance when established.
