I bought a home where the yard was not maintained when they put the home up for sale. Some of the grass is light green or brown, and that is with a september/early October with more than average rain.
Its apparent I need to put fertilzer on.
We have some dead patches of grass and I will be racking up the thatch and applying grass seed and fertilzer over these areas.
My question is - what first? I would think fertilzer first as it needs to be applied to the whole lawn. If I put grass seed down first, I will not be able to use the spreader then. I plan on putting knee high garden fences over the area that I plan on breaking up the earth and putting seed down.
I have read some sites that state fertilizer AFTER the grass seed, but I would rather not have any traffic over these area
- thanks in advance.
