I was concerned that the freeze/thaw cycle being absent this Spring that the seed on the surface of bare spot would not germinate... But with the warm rains this Spring a lot of these areas are greening up, with decent germination rates after all... These lawns are w/out irrigation so it the best shot of getting growth when the Late Summer seeding failed... We have finally started mowing lawns now and when the irrigation is turned on I plan to add pre-germinated AR mixed with compost for a Summer cover in areas that seem barren... Does anyone else use AR, for a dependable Summer cover in the lawns that do not have dependable irrigation???
