    Right now there is big discussion about taking care of the seedlings of the fall overseed season vs. the proper care of the existing mature grasses that these seedling are growing in... As they are all together in the same mix and supposedly have different needs:

    Is there a way to satisfy the needs of all plants in the lawn without overstimulating top growth for the seedlings?

    We recommend ICT Organics HydroSeed which inoculates seeds with mycorhizea and beneficial bacteria, and Nutrients PLUS Dynamic Duo 4-3-1 organic granular fertilizer.

    Well I was hoping for a solution that didn't involve product per se... but what does innoculated hydro-seed and 4-3-1 do for the winterizing of the existing grass???
