Well the rain was a bit too little, too late,,, for germination to occur on its own... The first composted seeding beds that were occassionally watered during warmer weather are off and running just fine...
The broadcast seed over 'dead lawn debris' was not up very well a couple of weeks ago,,,but I'm going down there today again for some more cleanup, and will check on the progress then...

As it is, I would have to say that the most reliable seeding was the compost with a good soaking to start off with, then occassional waterings thereafter...

A close second would be what came in last Spring from a Dormant Seeding...

The distant 3rd may be the broadcasting over the dried clippings lawn and No Preparation... Although the seed did diappear under the lawn debris after first watering, the seed didn't germinate...

My guess is that the "Dead Grasses" were not dead and the existing plants inhibited the establishment on any kind of seeding, as no weeds had sprung up either... It will be interestting to see what has happened with this lawn after 2 weeks...
