I had my yard finished last summer but due to it being done during a heat wave that lasted for a long time, I could not keep it watered that long. As a result, only patches of grass came in. I was going to rent a slit seeder to get the rest to come in this spring while we are getting rain. The question I have is after I complete the slit seeding, will lime help or damage the changes of seed germination if I put it on right after. I know there are fertilizers out there for new seeding but I have about 1/2 acre I need to do with a very limited budget ($200. $100 for slit seeder, $50 for additional seed (total of 100lbs), and $50 for lime or any other thing that will help). Any suggestions or better ideas.
