New Lawn Application Rate:
- 8 – 10lbs per 1,000 sq. ft. (340lbs – 425lbs per Acre). When seeding new lawn, use with a starter fertilizer.

When to Apply:
- Spring and fall, between 60°F and 80°F, are the best times to seed, but can be used anytime during the growing season, applicable to your region.
- Grass seed germinates when soil temperatures are consistently above 50°F. This roughly corresponds to daytime air temperatures between 60°F and 75°F.
- If grass seed is applied in fall, any ungerminated grass seeds will remain dormant throughout winter, then germinate when soil temperatures reach 50°F in spring.
- Germination of the grass seed mixture will start between 14-17 days. Grass seed will continue to thicken throughout growing season.
