    when overseeding do i just spread the seed on the lawn and hope it takes with water applied, or is it best to put down a top dressing first to give the seed something to hold to, i already raked the yard and now i want to overseed. also i already put my pre m down so any help would be great on this

    Well you would have to wait at least a month to seed if you applied pre m. Overseeding is actually done with a machine. If you are doing a atop dressing on a lawn (applying a layer of topsoil then seeding over it) use the flip side of a rake to mix the seed into the soil. You will get better results this way. :cool:
