Also what about Lime?

I'm brand spanking new to spreading any fertilizers, so any help is appreciated.

Use a fert with a lower nitrogen and higher phosphate after seeding to establish good root growth. Most starter ferts will have this.

I would not use lime unless you have a problem with your soil PH being to low.

If your laying the seed now make sure you get a quality seed that has good % germination so it will take before Winter. Aeration always helps too in the Fall.

good luck...
