Advice on sowing grass
The advantage of sowing grass with a seed spreader is that you can work quickly and easily, and get a smooth result. Always adhere to the dosage mentioned on the packaging. Sprinkle half of the dosage lengthwise and half width-wise. Make sure to include the edges too. Once you've spread the seeds, carefully rake them and roll the soil with a garden roller. Make sure to keep your soil moist until the first seeds sprout.
Your turf goes through a lot. As a result, bald spots occur sometimes. Re-seeding bald spots in your lawn is called overseeding. Sowing your lawn after scarifying, is actually called oversowing your lawn. Sprinkle the grass seed on the bald spot, according to the dosage on the packaging. Press the seeds gently, but don't cover it, for example with soil. Make sure to keep the lawn moist until the seeds sprout.
When to sow?
The soil must be at least 10 degrees when you want to sow. That's usually between the beginning of April until October. It's best to sow when there's little to no wind, because the seeds will blow away otherwise. If you want to be even smarter about it, you can sow right before it's going to rain. Grass seed has to stay moist until the seeds sprout. Under normal weather conditions, August, September, and October are the best months to sow your lawn.
