Apply using a Scotts® spreader. Lightly rake the seed into the soil. For best results, apply Scotts®Turf Builder® Starter® Food for New Grass.
Watering is a 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 5-12 days. You can mow the seedlings when they reach 2 inches in height. Do not apply a weed control product until after at least four mowings.
Spring and early summer are the best times to plant, because seed germinates best when daytime temperatures are between 70°F and 90°F and all danger of frost has passed.
