With Scotts® Turf Builder® Grass Seed Shady Areas Mix, you don't have to be a pro to grow a healthy lawn. Specially formulated for shady areas with moderate traffic, this hardy blend contains high quality varieties of Creeping Red Fescue, Kentucky Bluegrass and turf-type Perennial Ryegrass.
To overseed, mow grass closely, then loosen top ¼ inch of soil in bare and thin areas. To seed a new lawn and repair bare spots, loosen top 2 to 3 inches of soil to provide a lodging place for the seeds. Plant Seed: Distribute the seed evenly. For best results, always use a Scotts® brand spreader and follow the spreader setting recommendations on the bag of grass seed. Fertilizer and Water Thoroughly: Apply Scotts® Starter Fertilizer to increase seeding success and then water thoroughly. WATERING IS CRUCIAL TO SEEDING SUCCESS. Keep the top ½ inch of soil damp by watering twice daily until all seedlings are up. Continue to water once or twice a day until the lawn is established (6 to 8 weeks).Feed New Grass Plants: In 4-6 weeks, make an application of Scotts® Turf Builder® Lawn Fertilizer. This helps the plants knit together to form a thick, green carpet of grass.
Best done in spring or fall.
