Opinion? Does it matter what type of seed you are using? What condition should the old turf be? What is the best method in your part of the country?
I found out the best way slit seed is
1- thatch lawn with power rake one way
2 slit seed with out seed different way
3 sweep thatch up
4 broadcast 1/2 of the seed Apply Lime and Fertilizer
5 slit seed with the other 1/2 of the seed amount
I found this works with better results vs just slit seeding
To me seems leaving thatch and rains on it, The thatch mats back down seals up
I get under bid on lot of jobs but in long run people learns you get what you pay for
Im only one around here that gives a warranty Slit seeding I give 90 day and New Lawns I give 1 year
