Hi, I am in upstate NY the weather has been nice, but gets colder at night. I had a really really bad yard. It was very sandy,weedy,mossy and the like. I had a local kid come in and rake eveything really good, tear up all the weeds and moss and pick rocks. I then laid around an inch and a half of topsoil over the already loosened soil that was their. I bought Scott's turf builder seed with the all new water technology (the sponge like coating on the seed.) then I bought seed starter (little pellets of fertilizer and mulch the help retain water) I have watered EVERY DAY !! sometimes it got a little dry on top but I watered again to keep it as moist as I could. I raked the seed in very slightly too. I am going on 10 days and I have yet to see any sprouts. The bag said it will germinate within 5-10 days.... Any insight?
