With the last few days being unseasonably warm, if you wanted to spot seed a few areas of your lawn, now would be a good time. While the best time to seed is in the Fall, this warm weather will give the seed a window to germinate before pre-emergent is applied for crab grass.
If you intend to spot seed your lawn try doing the following:
As seed requires 100% soil contact in order to germinate, try using a rough rake to scratch the soil. Apply the seed by hand evenly. Don’t worry about more snow coming later. This creates a green house effect and provides moisture to the soil upon melting. As always, if you’d like to support our area veterans and have the best lawn on the block, you can always give us a call!
