How to get grass seed to start?

3 posts in this topic

I try every year to reseed the patchs where the dog dug a hole or where she puts on the brakes to pick up the dummy and rips the grass up.

But just putting the seed down doesn't seem to take, should I put black dirt on top of the seed?

Do you rake it in? Or just spread over the top of the ground?

Throw the grass seed down, throw a little starter fertilizer with it, rake it in so it's a hair under the top of the soil, and keep it damp. Just damp, not soaked.

Don't put down crabgrass preventer anywhere near the area.

get dirt on top of the seed, the birds will eat at it and the sun will scortch it.
