    Do you get good results when you broadcast seed before you aerate a lawn? It seems that it would take a long time to overseed an acre?
    Please advise:rolleyes:

    at what rate (lbs. oer 1000sqft.) do you spread at? This is my main question.
    Thanks for helping

    thanks but im still not satisfied. So say it calls for 4-6 lbs. per 1000 for a new lawn. How much then would i put for reseeding?

    I heard overseeding is about 1/2 the rate of new seeding, but I may be wrong..

    60-70% of new lawn rate for reseeding is what I use.
    But I'm sure others will differ.
