Anyone use Peat Moss as a top dressing after seeding a lawn? I have heard so many conflicting comments. "It holds moisture", "It dries the soil" ,It pulls moisture from the seed and soil." I have used in on a few newly seeded lawns with great success. I have a spreader (round wire cage) that spreads it to about 1/8" or less. Depends on how fast or slow you walk.
