|Planting seeds is more economical, but it takes longer for the lawn to grow. Shade stresses lawn grass, so use a mixture of seed blended for sun and for shade. To keep the wind from blowing the seeds, mix with barely damp, clean soil when sowing.|
When sowing seeds, work back and forth, left to right, then turn and repeat the sowing to eliminate gaps in growth.
Water the soil, spread a thin layer of straw mulch to keep it from drying out and water lightly every day.
TIP: Straw mulch slowly decomposes.
Don’t walk on or mow the grass until the roots are well established, which takes two to three months.
