    Just reviewed my March thread in regards to the % tttf vs kbg. I guess i went 50% kbg. Wow. I will say it’s the most lush carpet lawn that I’ve seen in person (truly not exaggerating). I ordered 100# tttf and only 25# of kbg for this Reno so I guess I’m going 25% kbg. Maybe I’ll order another bag anyhow.
    I know this is going against conventional wisdom, science, you tube, research, etc....but seeds “relatively” cheap. And I feel from personal experience it doesn’t choke itself out as I’ve read. So I’ll seed heavy rate

    Simple answer yes. If I was only going to do one thing to a lawn it would be to add compost. Even more so in a seeding situation.

    Just applied 2nd gly app. Also stopped by “compost store” and checked their products. The 35 dollar per yard compost referred to as “forestry compost” is a LITTLE chunky but super dark and seems like it’ll spread well.
    The guy also talked me Into something for 30 bucks a bag 3 50# bags of some chicken manure / micronutrient blah blah. Anyhow. When I pick it up this weekend I’ll share what it is.
    Going all in on this one
