    I serched and couldn't figure out excatly the time I should go.....

    I bought some new seed for my yard to over seed and to put on some bare spot where I have been doing yard work... I also bought some weed n feed "28-3-3" because I have a few "not many" dandylions "I guess that's how you spell those little yellow flowers" and some onion grass how long do I have to leave the seed on before I can put out the weed and feed? Thanx

    Brand new to this...Any help or advice appreciated

    I would wait a at least a few weeks (2-3) before doing the weed and feed. The weed and feed usually needs all the grass to have started growing so if you have any bermuda grass it'll just start to be growing by then anyway. But don't wait any longer that 3 weeks....

    What part of Murfreesboro? I go to school down here, and work up in Hendersonville.

    The information I have gotten is wait until you have cut the new seedlings three times. You can cut the new grass when it reaches the normal mowing height which for most grasses is between 1.5 to 3.5 inches as a high and low
