    IVE HEARD OF ALL TYPES OF STEPS AND TRICKS TO SEED A NEW LAWN JUST WONDERING WHAT EVERYONE ELSE DOES COMPARED TO ME.
    1 AERATE THE **** OUT OF THE GROUND I DONT ROTOTILL BECAUSE USUALLY IT BRINGS UP A LOT OF WEED SEEDS AND MAKES THE LAWN LUMPY
    2 SPREAD SEED
    3COVER SEED WITH 1-2 INCHES OF DIRT
    4 SPREAD MORE SEED ON TOP THEN RAKE IT IN
    5 STARTER FERT.
    6 COVER EVERYTHING IN SALT HAY

    I have seen guys till up the hole yard levelit add new soil and they come out with the same result as me and im doing half the work of tilling. I dont know why you would till the yard when the aeration works just fine.
    with in a month its thick and green if they water correctly .
