Has anyone tried broadcasting new seed into an existing lawn. Then follow up using a compost spreader (Ecolawn or Earth & Turf) and placing 1/4" of compost down into the yard. Did you have good results??? Or could you... 1st. Broadcast seed in yard. 2nd. Spread started fertilizer throught out the yard. 3rd. Use a compost spreader to spread compost over new seed and starter fertilizer. 4th. Water. 5th. Would you have new grass???
