Hi All. I have a couple questions for you all regarding dormant seeding [live in mn]. We just completed our newly built home [ ] and basically have mud for a yard. Although my 1 yr old boy & 4 yr old girl thinks it's great, dad is more of a "grass guy". I believe that it's too late to now to seed for germination here in central mn, so i was planning on trying dormant seeding to get things rolling next spring. Then i suppose i'll work on it all next year with reseeding, fertilizing, weed control, etc. My question is, when is a good time to dormant seed here in my area, and being a completely excavated area, i have heard suggestions of using a hay spreader over the top to stop the bird buffett & the washing away of the seed. Oh, and the area i am looking at doing is about 1 1/2 acres, so fairly large area. Your thoughts and comments are appreciated! Thanks.
