My Plan of Attack for this Fall in My Bare Spot would be as followed:
1. Scratch up the surface ground area about 3 inches deep with a small rake (the type with 3 fingers)....just trying to loosen up the soil a bit.
2. Place Organic Compost in bare spot and mix current loosen soil with new organic compost together.
3. Then Hand spread seed over bare spot.
3. Rake seed and ground/organic compost soil together to buried seed into the ground.
4. Take a shovel of organic compost and spread over the bare spot area. Covering any leftover seed that might be exposed.
4. Then wet down the area....giving the bare spot a good soaking.
It sounds like a lot of work....but it would go really quick...and I don't mind doing a little more work for better results.
