    How much does a slit seeder tear up existing grass? I don't want to do more harm than good!

    Thank you,

    Joel B.

    I have never had a problem. It will bring up some thatch as well as cut green grass and leave it on top, but that is exactly what I do, leave it there on top. After time it will get mulched.

    It never does MORE harm than good. The slits are so narrow, that damage is kept to a minimum. It heals quicly, and if you fert. it, it will build up even stronger and thicker, anyway.
