Will it still grow if I can’t rake it in or cover it with top soil?

Asked by GregT November 3, 2019

Answers

Hi GregT Thank you for your question. As the Scotts person stated, preparation is very important. Keep in mind that Bermuda Grass is NOT a winter grass. Once the ground temperature falls below 55F, Bermuda goes to sleep for the season. A good quality topper placed over the seed would be your best bet to keep it in place until spring arrives. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Rick_HD_OC

How much do you sprinkle per square 3?

1 Lb is not enough to do an entire lawn but for empty areas. I don't measure it but just throw it carefully onto the empty areas, rake it into the soil, put a fertilizer on it and keep moist.

Product overview states add starter food in step 2,on the back of the bag it states 2 to 4 weeks....

Much depends on the weather and rainfall or overcast days. Sometimes I see change in two or three days. But in general it does take 2 to 4 weeks. You can use starter food or just mix up a fertilizer to use. Keep watering sprinkles to keep it moist but not muddy you apt to float the seed away being too vigorous. After sprinkling seed try raking it into the soil and start to gently water a few times a day.

When is the recommended time to apply this seed?

I use it anytime during summer months and it has always worked well for me. You can even spread sterile manure over it before watering. Never over water it, just enough to keep it wet/moist.

How much area does 1lb of seed cover

Not very much...at all

Do we have to place new soil for the seeds. Also can we spray weed killer on the lawn that will have the new seed.

Asked by carlos July 21, 2013

Answers

Yes new soil is good if your soil is not up to par. Sometimes go by your own feelings about your soil conditions. Work the new soil into the area and fertilize and then sprinkle the seeds in the area you want. Then water enough to keep it moist but not too much

I live in NE Florida and planted these seeds the beginning of August. The pictures are 2 1/2 weeks after I laid them. My soil has a lot of sand in it and it's not in the healthiest. The previous homeowners had their downspouts emptying onto the front lawn (stripped my soil) and we've had a lot of hurricanes that have taken their toil on it too. Here's what I did and the results: 1. I tried my best to rip up and prepare the compacted soil (roots from a huge oak hindered my efforts). 2. I laid down a lot more seed than they said to knowing a lot would not sprout. I did try to gently rake them into the soil. 2. I watered at least 2x a day (this is a MUST for the seeds to germinate). Results: 1. The sandy areas did not stay moist enough for the seeds to germinate. The compacted areas with roots saw zero germination. The decent areas I was able to loosen up saw about 40% germination. Fertile areas germinated real well... I'd estimate 75% + germinated. 2. Ssssllllooooowww growth. I don't know if it's partly due to the fact it's hurricane season again so there are days that are mostly overcast, but those shoots are barely growing. "Like watching the grass grow" is a euphemism I can now relate too. So... If you aren't willing to break up/till the soil before laying the seeds, don't buy the seeds. If you can't water the seeds at least 2x a day, don't buy the seeds. Whatever you do, don't expect miracles. This is a lot of work for small, slow results. I would have loved to plant bermuda sod, but they don't carry it locally. Seeds were my only option and it should result in mature grass by next spring.

Great seed! Grew after a week
I’m in Phoenix and its July. I put the seed down on a few bare spots and watered 3 times a day for a week. I now have grass growing in the bare spots. I'll be buying more.

Not working for me
Prepare the ground. Cut the existing rye grass down. Dethached the yard. Three days later after heavy rain. Went back over my yard with a rake to get the remaining dead grass up to much as possible bare dirt. Used two bags(5lbs) each over 1,000sq ft along with starter fertilizer. It’s been three weeks.....in VA and weather is between 80-90 degrees. With me watering and rain it’s getting plenty of water. Have very few small places it has grown.....but 85% of the yard is still bare. Now The potential for weeds developing is a concern.

The seeds germinated in one week after planting. The terminating rate is high. It was late summer. We soaked the seeds in water overnight before planting. So far, the one month old grass does not look like adult Bermuda, but looks healthy.

The grass growth within the first two weeks. The weather helps because it rains every day during that period of time so I recommend to water it everyday.
