Rake area to loosen the top layer of soil and remove dead grass. For best results, add a thin layer of Scotts® Turf Builder® Lawn Soil before applying seed.
Apply using a Scotts® spreader. Lightly rake the seed into the soil.
Watering is the critical step to seeding success. Water daily or as needed to keep the soil surface moist until the seedlings reach at least 2 inches tall.
Seed will begin to grow in 6-10 days. You can mow the seedlings when they reach 3 inches in height. Apply Scotts® Turf Builder® Starter Food for New Grass 2-4 weeks after seeding. Do not apply a weed control product until after at least three mowings.
Fall and spring are the best times to plant grass seed, because seed germinates best when temperatures are between 61°F and 70°F.
