Most new grasses germinate best with a soil temperature around 65-75f and plenty of water. Both of those conditions were practically non-existent in the lower 48 for the past 3-4 months.

Get ready to hit the weeds with Round-Up and try again next month. I think you'll see some better results. Where are you located?
I'm in Maryland. I was told by one homeowner that I put no soil down, I should have placed fertilizer down????
