Mow at 1 to ½ inches as soon as the lawn begins to green up.
Mow the lawn often and in different directions.
As weather conditions dictate, ensure moisture by allowing for approx. 1 inch per 10 days. DO NOT OVER WATER.
Fertilize 2 to 3 times per year based on lawn grass needing ½ to 1 pound of actual nitrogen per 1000 sq. ft. per month of growing season.
Mow to 1 ½ to 2 inches in late fall. Tall dormant grass will harm lawn if left over winter months.
A core aerator should be used on your lawn when the ground becomes compacted. Aeration will allow water and nutrients to reach the grass roots and should be done at least every other year.
Mow the lawn as short as possible and remove clippings.
Use a mechanical or hand rake to remove the dead thatch allowing seed to contact the soil.
Use a mechanical or hand rake to loosen the soil surface to a depth of ¼ inch.
From this point care for the seeding the same as you would a new lawn.
