Did I do it right ??

Hi all, greetings from Croatia !

Its my first time planting a lawn... its been much more work and preparation than I thought it would be. I planted a premium brand seed xonaisting of 90% tall fescue and 10% Kentucky blue grass.... I asume the kbg is in there because of spreading capabilities ..

I have done allot of research on tall fescue and everywhere I read that it grows fast.. but mine is not....

I planted the seed 13.04.2017... now it has been 23 days.. here are some pictures.. hope someone could point out if it looks ok for 23 days.. or too short ???

Will the small bare patches fill up, or should I overseed now ?

It looks ok for 23 days. It will fill in over time. Make sure you keep up with the watering. Grass seed that dries out will die. You can overseed the bare spots, but I think it will fill in over time. Check your sprinkler pattern, You may need to adjust the overlap.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.
