thats why im skipping the newly seeded areas. thanks why i asked the question.
I plan on having a 1-2 ft "buffer" zone. My question is will that be enough? I know a herbicide will kill the seed.


would you wait or just have the "buffer" zone?
A buffer should work fine... Just think to yourself, "If the water starts soaking and dispersing this chemical, does it look like any of it will move into my seeding area??"

Because they read it somewhere. Seems very few actually know what it is all about. It is something that should be done when needed, not on a yearly basis. And in my opinion, Aeration is not normally needed to sow grass seed. Just another add-on, to get more money, for most.

And you get a lot of nasty responses when you question the need for it...
