    I'm going to overseed my parents lawn with bermuda. What is the best way to spread it? I have a hand spreader and a bucket spreader( can't think of correct name). We are going to spread about 15lbs worth of seed. Should I set the opening in the spreader real small since the seed is so small? I'm going to do this sometime this weekend? Help.

    I would mow short thin rent slit seeder and go at it without dropping seed! Overseed with your 15 # then water it good everyday for the next 10 days!

    Bump, any more advice on this, as I would like to do this on my yard. Will a hand spreader work for this? Is it as simple as spreading the seed and watering it? We are expecting rain for the next 5-6 days, would this be a good time to do it? Am I missing something on this, as I have never done anything like this before. Is it to late in the year to seed?

    No need to answer my questions, as I have done my home work.
