Overseeding with KBG???
My plan is to overseed 13000 sq. ft. That didn't take so well from a dormant seeding last late fall. I would like to do it properly this time (in early fall) I am in zone 3 I think? (50 miles north of North Dakota/Canada border).
I have done hours of reading here and this is my plan.
Scalp the area with the cutting deck as low as it will go. ( is scalping it a bad idea? Will it harm the grass that I do have?). Bag the clippings, aerate, broadcast seed, and roll it. Water 15 minutes 3x per day for 5 weeks.
I will be using a quality mix of several KGB seeds from Brett Young Seeds.
Thinking of doing it the last week of August. Is the timing right?
What would be a good starter fert. to use? Milogarnet? Do I put down right before I seed or after?
Would I get better results with a slit seeder instead of aerating?
Thanks in advance.
