Correct Smallaxe!

I have replaced the slit seeding operation with broadcasting seed with a spreader.

Then with My Ecolawn Spreader....lay 1/4" to 1/2" of organic compost on top of the new seed/spread the rest of the organic compost through out the now the new seed is buried.

And then the customer needs to water or better yet....rain from up above.....and their yards look amazing (within 3 weeks)!!!

You can see where the grass is filling in, and the customer's dead/thatchy area's are now growing new grass and starting to fill in their bare spots.

I will have some pictures up tonight....Before and After Shots.

But long story short....spreading the organic compost on top of new grass seed has given me My Best Results when coming to Reseeding, fixing, or thickening up customer's yards.

And I don't think I will ever use another slit seeder again!!! Their results are too iffy!
