It's springtime, and you know what that means. Baseball. Played on the most beautiful grass you've ever seen. As a true fan, you crave a lawn that looks as nice as the grass around the diamond you know so well. Now, with Scotts MLB Authentic Grass Seed, you can make that grass a part of your lawn by overseeding.
Overseeding is the one time you should mow your lawn short. That will allow Scotts MLB Authentic Grass Seed to find the ground when you spread it. You can always aerate the lawn prior to overseeding to increase soil contact.
Use a spreader to lay down Scotts MLB Authentic Grass Seed over your existing lawn. Spread Scotts® Turf Builder® Starter Fertilizer to help the new grass grow thicker and quicker. When you're done, it's essential to keep Scotts MLB Authentic Grass Seed moist until the grass is 2 inches tall. That means watering lightly 2-3 times a day when there is no rain.
Hold off on mowing until the seedlings reach a normal mowing height at a high setting. At that point, you can cut back to regular watering. Water deeply but infrequently. For tips on watering, see our article on The Right Way to Water Your Lawn. Maintain your ballpark look by feeding your lawn about every 6-8 weeks with Scotts MLB Authentic Lawn Fertilizer. It contains the same technology used on the field.
