    I have just completed my last scheduled overseeding for the year and wonder how you do it in other parts of the country. What we do in AZ is cut low(1 inch or less) spread seed, starter fertilizer, and a finely screened compost over top. Mostly common bermuda grass, some Hybrids and the overseeding is always Perennial Rye. How do you do it? Would I benefit from using a slit-seeder (I don't see anyone using one), and how late can you overseed to insure uniform germination?? A note, our high temp today was 80 Degrees. Thanks in advance.

    Question for you-Do you just do a grid pattern when spreading seed?

    For the most part, yes. I also do a diagonal pattern on larger lawns in addition to the grid.
