Overseeding and Topdressing

After a winter raking, you may find some bare patches on the lawn from heavy traffic, dog waste, or an object left for a while. You may need to seed these bare patches with new seed. Apply a slow-release nitrogen fertilizer when you overseed. Five weeks after the grass germinates, apply a quick-release nitrogen fertilizer. However, the best time to overseed would be in the fall. Be sure to mark down a date to aerate your lawn.
