GUIDE TO SEEDING A NEW LAWN
Step 1- Till or loosen soil, removing all debris, vegetation, rocks, sticks, etc...Rake out and grade away from house.
Step 2- Apply seed with spreader.  A more uniform application can be made by spreading twice at the 1/2 rate in different directions(criss-cross).  Follow with starter fertilizer(13-25-12).
Step 3- Lightly rake in seed and fertilizer by dragging a leaf rake over the seed bed, applying no pressure to the rake.
Step 4- Water lightly at least 3 times daily(10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m.).  Grass seed may take 7 to 21 days, depending on soil temperature, moisture, and seed type.  Germination will not occur if seed bed is not kept moist at all times.  Once seed has germinated and is at least 1" tall, water once daily in early a.m.  Begin cutting as soon as grass is 2 1/2" tall. After 3 cuttings, begin watering twice weekly, applying 1/2" water each time.
Step 5- Apply seed starter fertilizer monthly through first year.  Apply no weed controls until lawn has been cut at least 4 times.  Generally, a lawn seeded in the spring would not get any week control until May or June of the following year.  Lawns seeded in September may have weed controls applied the following May or June.

GUIDE TO RESEEDING YOUR ESTABLISHED LAWN
