Rake area to loosen the top layer of soil and remove dead grass. For best results, add a thin layer of Scotts® Turf Builder® LawnSoil before applying seed.
Apply using a Scotts® spreader. Lightly rake the seed into the soil. For best results, apply Scotts® Turf Builder® Starter® Food for New Grass when seeding to help new grass grow in quicker and thicker.
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.
Seed will begin to grow in 14-28 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 any time temperatures are between 70°F and 90°F and all danger of frost has passed.
