O.K., here is the deal. My lawn was torn up and totally renovated last about 16 to 18 months ago. Looks pretty decent, needs overseeding again even though I did over seed this fall I figure I will do it again this spring too. I have used Lesco and Scotts both andwas wondering which one I should go with. My question is the Lesco program calls for a fertilizer like 25-0-06 with pre-M anywhere from mid January through late March. I thought about mid Feb, I would want to start putting out the fertilizer and pre-M, but I also need to overseed and not sure how long it will take the seed to germinate especially not knowing what the temps might do around here (N.C.). If I overseed now and in say 2 to 3 weeks then I put out Feertilizer and Pre-M, if the seed has not germinated it will prevent it from coming up want it? I hope all this makes since and anybody out there please feel free to let me know what your opinion is and what kind of timeline I need to follow. Would it be beter for me as a home owner to use the Scott's line of products as I think there are not as many steps to follow as the Lesco. And if Scotts is what you feel I should use then what do I need to start of with first? Crabgrass preventer or what? Thanks for any help, this site is full of knowledge, it's just sometimes hard to understand how much is the truth and what part is egos on here. Some people say one thing is junk and other praise it and not being in the business, it gets me confused sometimes. Thanks again.
