Tips on Seeding
The best time of year to seed Kentucky Bluegrass is end of August-September. But if you need to fix areas of your lawn that had winter damage here are some tips.
-Wait to go on your lawn until frost is out and your lawn is dry and firm. If you go on lawn too early you will cause compaction.
- When seeding do not add preemergent weed killers. Example crabgrass killer. This will kill your seed.
-It is important to fertilizer your lawn (refer to fertilizer tips)
-Make sure you know what kind of seed you are applying. READ the Label!! Bluegrass is most often planted in Minnesota and is often most expensive.
