    My local JD Landscapes (LESCO)

    I stopped by my local John Deere Landscapes (LESCO) store and picked up some seed, starter fertilizer, and a new 50lb LESCO professional spreader. Getting ready to do some aerating and overseeding this weekend.

    Anyone else doing any overseeding projects?

    BTW, customer service at JD Landscapes' customer service is FAR better than my local JD equipment dealer.

    I'll be doing some overseeding pretty soon. I made the mistake of spreading 4 yards of top and seeding during the hottest of the summer... My well wouldn't support the amount of water the new seed (even in the shady areas) needed for that heat. Grass and some weeds grew pretty sparsely so I'll use the front dethatcher set all the way down and scratch it up first and seed it again. That dethatcher works real good preparing lawn seedbed. (I'm also thinking of Round Upping it first and going from scratch...)

    Had the same problem and issues with a new leach field we had put in this year. I am not starting over though, just going to seed over it and call it a day.

    We intend to, at least the thin spots and am praying this fall season brings more rain than we rec'd this summer.

    This is our process...please comment as I am always looking for feedback to better and more productive manners to approach a task.

    a) mow the area to be overseeded very short (almost to the point of scalping)
    b) core aerate the entire lawn
    c) top dress the area to be overseeded with rich top soil (composted horse manure and lawn clippings)
    d) spread new seed over area
    e) rake the seed into the top dressing
    f) roll the area with a lawn roller
    g) water 3-4 times a day
    h) as soon as we start seeing new growth, we follow up with starter fertlizer


    Thank you in advance for any input

    "e) rake the seed into the top dressing

    Sounds like a sound plan! When I seed I always broadcast a little more seed on top before rolling, "just in case" and because I tend to over-do with lawn seed.

    I don't have a roller, so I use "turf tires" and make passes with the tractor (Garden Tractor).

    Thanks for the info on the LESCO. I always have good service at the Ag dealer, but Colonie is 10 miles closer.

    LouMG - Where are you located at?

    BTW, the overseeded lawn is beginning to show progress. So far the rye grass has germinated, and now waiting for the Kentucky Blue Grass and Fescue to come up!

    Schenectady county. Currently in California explains post time being midnight. Just finished aerating the lawn with a rental machine, spread Topper, and over seeded. Growing grass is tough here, no rain. Going home tomorrow can't wait for some seat time.

    I have 300# is dwarf fescue in the back of the pickup waiting for tractor to get back from dealer. I need to finish adding dirt where my septic laterals have settled and get seed down everywhere else.

    We have 3 acres (2.1 turf) that we built on 2 years ago. Its been a challenge to get it growing and I have tried both spring seeding and fall seeding. I have had very little luck getting things to grow during spring and summer but fall of course works out best.

    Its all about soil contact here. The bigger patches of bare spots I have been adding a thin layer of top soil to which helps tremendously. I started out by rolling after the seed was down by honestly my best results have been leaving the dirt somewhat rough with clods 1 to 2" in diameter. Seems to hold the seed and water in pockets and as it rains the clods melt over the seed. There is no doubt in my areas with clods took much better than the stuff I had graded perfectly smooth and rolled.

    I designed, drew and general contracted my house along with several other hands on duties with the build. Growing grass has been the biggest challenge !!!

    Been three weeks since I overseeded and today made my first cut. Followed it up with a healthy dose of Milorganite to boot.
