You should expect 65% to 70% germination rate from slit seeding. Just broadcasting rate is 15%. A guess: coring & broadcasting success rate ~20% to 30%. Also depends on how much soil is pulled up. Have seen chemlawn aerate with tines worn down so much they barely penetrate the soil.<p>Have you checked those lawn you refer to? How do they look now? Especially if they don't look much improved, take a few photos. Next time you have to quote an overseed, include pictoral results of your slitseed vs their core & broadcast. Refute the lower bid in advance.<p>----------<br>Jim<br>North central Indiana<br>
