How to Replant Lawn Grass
Clear the area
Kill weeds and any remaining poor-looking grass with a non-selective herbicide about 2 weeks before you want to seed your lawn. After everything is completely dead, rake the area to remove the debris.
Prep for success
After aerating, rake the area level and loosen the top ¼ inch of soil. Then add a 1-inch layer of Scotts® LawnSoil™ evenly across the entire planting area.
Select your grass seed
Cool season grasses that do best with extreme temperature fluctuations, such as those found in the North, Northeast, and Pacific Northwest.
Spread your grass seed
Use the “New Lawn” coverage rate.
Feed for growth
After you’ve spread your grass seed, apply Scotts® Turf Builder® Starter® Lawn Food for New Grass to provide developing grass seedlings much-needed nutrients
so the young root system can grow deeper, faster.
