    i have a seed job that washed away with 4" of rain

    some of the seed started to grow

    if i run the drag over it to spread it out will the(already germinated) seed come back?

    Ya, If you hold your tonge just right while on a blue moon looking towards the southern hemisphere.
    reseed about the only way to get it to look right. chalk it up to looking at the weather channel every time before you seed and start using a substrate such as straw and peat moss to try and keep it from washing away.
    Mother nature is a mother isn't she.

    i guess it's more $ in my pocket this way he wanted it done that weekend. not sure he cares about how much it costs.

    i will be using straw this time.

    about 30% coverage is this right?

    rye or fescue? Bluegrass or mix?? rye and fescue I try to hit 40-50 for fast thick germination. Bluegrass and blue mix I lean out as the blue will spread and rye and fescue are bunch grasses.
