    What are you overseeding? Fescue, rye, etc.
     
  3. Did you do a search on this?

    How thick of turf?

    What kind of turf?

    What kind of seed?

    How are you going to introduce it to the soil?

    Are you going to power rake?

    Are you going to aerate?

    Are you going to slit seed?

    And is that the correct size of turf area?

    We need more INFO!

  5. Lesco is a supplier. What kind of seed?

    So you are telling us your lawn is RYE.

    You are telling us it is thick turf.

    And you are going to aerafy it.

    So Why seed it if it is thick?

    But 20# of seed should do real good! At 6# per a 1,000

    What does heavily mean? You want it thick or it is already thick?

    Is the rye for turf or is it a temporary thing until spring?
