Outstanding. I think you will really be pleased with the job that the aera-vator does. I've never used the seed box so i don't know how you would control the depth but 3/16 is optimal, no deeper than 1/4". Six Lbs. of seed per 1000 sq. ft. with irrigation, eight Lbs. without. Prime seeding date for you is September 1.
