OK, so I am just over 2 weeks into the new lawn. For those of you complaining about the 800 number you called (the (800) 505-0465 number), FORGET ABOUT THEM! You will receive a TINY amount of seed after waiting 2 months for it and will deal with foreign people on the phone who do not care about your problems! They are just a reseller. Call the REAL company at (866) 920-5322 and they will tell you who in your area sells this stuff. For me, there was a store literally 10 minutes from my house at Haynes in Oxford CT and I was able to walk in and buy a 44 lb bag (they also have smaller bags) of the stuff.
Regardless of where you live, follow the planting instructions on their website. I am hoping that some of you who are savvy at planting grass can help me with this one... I have some random bald spots, and most likely it's my fault, but I need to dump the rest of the seed from my bag into my bare areas (mostly in the back yard) to ensure I have full coverage. I put phosphate and nitrogen (Scotts starter fertilizer) in my soil, and am hoping there is still some in there so the second go-around of planting will not require additional treatment. It may take a year to have my grass perfect and weed free, but right now I have a clean slate. You can see the progress thread here: https://www.helpfulgardener.com/forum/vi ... 32&t=55076
Below is my grass 2 weeks after planting. Could use some help on filling in the bare spots as I am largely inexperienced at planting grass.
