  • How to Use

    1. PREP
    Rake area to loosen the top layer of soil and remove dead grass. For best results, add a thin layer of ScottsŪ Turf BuilderŪ Lawn Soil™ before applying seed.

    2. APPLY
    Apply using a ScottsŪ spreader. Lightly rake the seed into the soil.

    3. WATER
    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.

    4. CARE
    Seed will begin to grow in 14-28 days. You can mow the seedlings when they reach 3 inches in height. Apply ScottsŪ Turf BuilderŪ Starter Food for New Grass 2-4 weeks after seeding. Do not apply a weed control product until after at least three mowings.
