For best results, add a thin layer of Scotts® Turf Builder® LawnSoil™ before applying seed.

After seeding, apply Scotts® Turf Builder® Starter® Food for New Grass to boost your seed's performance for a thicker lawn that comes in quicker. Lightly rake to move the seed and fertilizer into the soil.
Keep the soil surface moist until the seedlings reach 2 inches tall.
Seed will begin to grow in 6 - 14 days. You can mow the seedlings when they reach 3 inches in height. Do not apply a weed control product until after at least four mowings.
Fall and spring are the best times to plant grass seed, because seed germinates best when temperatures are between 60°F and 80°F.
