What is the best way to prepare and seed an existing football field? Here's what the district wants to do...1st - mow very short to remove clippings. 2nd - aerate. 3rd - overseed. 4th - roll with a 900 lb. roller. Does this sound like a good plan? They will broadcast the seed, they don't have any special equipment for this. When is the best time to fertilize: before seeding...after seeding...after germination? Thanks for any input.
