I just bought a bag of seeds from Costco: Pennington Smart Blend


My lawn has many dead grass spots due to some plants being in places I didn't want them 2 weeks back. It also has mosses.

I raked them all to make the surface a little rough then spread the seeds down like the photos

  1. Did I spread it enough?

  2. Should I put compost? Because there are some mosses?

  • did you soak the seeds for about 24 hours before spreading as that will help wake them up? May 21, 2019 at 22:54
  • I did not. Am I screw? I am spraying water twice a day now. It has been 2 days.

  • you can do something like this with a large tarp to get the seeds to sprout, or wait for snowfall: youtube.com/watch?v=p7tN4ohZXfc May 22, 2019 at 17:41
  • If you have moss , you do not have enough sun for most grasses. May 23, 2019 at 0:50
