Remove all old vegetation to prepare a clean seedbed by means of a rake. Drag or rake the area to both loosen and level any hard or uneven spots if needed. Apply a slow-release starter fertilizer at the recommended rate of 5 lbs. Per 1,000 sq. ft. for lawns. Fertilize your lawn three times a year for best results.
Broadcast seed at recommended rate. Drag, rake or roll lightly to cover the seed, no more than 1/4 in. below surface. If you are overseeding an existing lawn or pasture, it is essential to mow existing grass low and incorporate seed 1/4 in. into the soil for best results. Apply lawn irrigation for approximately 30 minutes every evening until soil is damp, and germination has occurred. Irrigate newly-seeded lawns every other day until the grass reaches 6 inches, then water recommended 3 times a week, if needed.
