Did you or do you plan to aerate and overseed your lawn this fall? Here are some best practices to care for your baby seedlings!
- Water immediately after seeding and then keep the seeds moist for approximately 4 weeks. Lack of water is the top deterrent from proper seed germination. Dowco has applied seed starter mulch to help insulate the seed, keep moisture in and birds out.
- Continue to mow and blow leaves from turf as normal, but never rake new seedlings while they’re trying to get rooted.
- Limit the amount of activity on your lawn for the remainder of the year. New grass seed will begin to germinate within 7-10 days and will reach maturity next spring.
- If you use Dowco for your renovation, we will fertilize your new seedlings with a starter fertilizer that encourages new growth. We will also return within 30 days for a complimentary spot seeding to treat bare and trouble areas.
