The only thing that helps seed germinate quicker is good seed to soil contact and good temps and moisture! :)

I would recommend putting a started fertilizer down with the seed and then coming back in 4 weeks later with another starter fertilzer app.

I use 18-24-12 50%SCU.

Have you pulled any soil samples of this site yet? You may want to as making adjustments to your soil is easiest to do with no turf!

I don't know anything about your soils out there!
