BARE SPOT REPAIR/NEW LAWN
BARE SOIL - Loosen top layer of soil
DEAD GRASS/THIN AREA - Rake area and remove dead grass

Mow lawn short. Aerate or dethatch to loosen top layer of soil. For best results, overseed every fall

LARGE AREA - Apply using a Scotts® drop or broadcast push spreader
After seeding, apply Scotts® Turf Builder® Starter® fertilizer, according to directions on package, to boost seed's performance for a thicker lawn that grows in quicker. Lightly rake to move seed and fertilizer into soil
Watering is the critical step to seeding success. Keep the soil moist, by watering frequently (rather than deeply), until the seedlings reach 2 inches tall.
Enjoy your beautiful lawn with family and friends. Mow seedling when they reach regular mowing height. For best results, make an application of Scotts® Turf Builder® Lawn fertilizer 6-8 weeks after new seedlings sprout
