Tis the season for baby grass seed.

Seeding prime time is upon us. Three weeks ago I killed off approx 5000 sq ft. Scalped raked, broadcast seed, raked again. Watering four times daily. Seed went down August 30th. I'm seeing good germination now. I used Reinders premium 60 seed.
I also overseeded an additional 5000sqft. I used 4.5 lbs per thousand everywhere.

Soooo who else has got seed going? Hows it going?

Okay then, boy you're fast! I've got 4000 sqft going. Germinated three days ago. Mazama KBG and Bluebank KBG but not mixed. Planted on the 31st.

Just aerating and overseeding part of my lawn. Will only water a couple parts the rest relies on nature. Which is why it’s not happening until this weekend. Ground has been rock hard with not rain until recently.

Still a little to warm here to seed.. maybe 2 weeks. We are still in the mid 80s during the day and low 70s at night.. waiting for cooler nights to kick this Bermuda butt. Then over seeding with 2800000 lbs of tall fescue!
