Whether you’ve identified seeding or sodding as the best approach for your yard, Full Circle is going to make things EASY. Who doesn’t like easy? While sowing seeds is typically cheaper, sodding typically gets you to a full, lush, attractive lawn quicker. So, whichever option you choose as more appealing, see below for some helpful tips (no tricks needed).

The Best Process to Seed Your Lawn (or Re-Seed)

Let’s get right to it:
1. Rake existing bare spots across entire desired coverage area
2. Get a seed spreader and spread those seeds
3. Spread 1/4 inch of Full Circle’s BOOST (crucial)
4. Watering newly sown seeds: Twice a day, 6 minutes per cycle. If possible, set morning timers to 8:00 AM and afternoon timers at 3:00 PM. Remember, you have to keep the seeds wet for 2 weeks. Then water normally.
Now, get your lawnmower tuned up because you’re about to be trimming your lawn in as little as 3 weeks.
