Hope everyone that over seeded is giving great germination.

Temps in the mid Atlantic are amazing for this time a year with cooler nights for adding amazing conditions for over seeding the lawn.

Don't let the seed dry out, but don't saturate, just mist twice a day or as needed.

On my list for this weekend to do! The lawn survived my screw up in June, and now ready to bring it back to lushness just in time for it all to go dormant again....

Jose's been sitting off the coast of MA for almost a week now sending light rain our way. Just been a permanent raw mist.


As a result, my seeds are sprouting like crazy and my grass is growing to a point where I've had to mow every 3 days.

I wish I had that problem here in mid-Michigan. I just hydroseeded Tuesday afternoon, and we've now got 94 degree temps, with no rain in sight... I'm watering for 10-15 minutes, 5 times (every 2~ hours or so) per day to keep the seed bed moist.

Ahhhh, Fall.. After this "heat wave" (80s) we cool back down this coming weekend.

My plans:

1: Add some compost to needed parts of lawn
2: Core Aerate property for 1st time since...1980s?
3: Add starter fertilizer
4: Add Milorganite
5: Add Grass seeds

Been following weather and I mentioned both your locations past few days... Impressed at the 90s in Michigan and the constant Jose spin for Eastern MA.

Did Eastern MA struggle past 60s again today? How many days is that? Poor Boston? Mist, Drizzle on and off for days now thanks to Jose.

There goes Michigan again. Big Jet Stream dip over the Rockies down to Mexico. Big Ridge in the East.

Eastern MA must be cursing or thanking Jose still.

Damn Michigan, record amount of September 90s?

Bring back to lushness...

How did the overseeding go?

Which seed did you use?

I've been watering my hydroseeded area 5 times a day spread out, for 10 minutes each time. Just enough to keep the seedbed wet.

It's so blazing hot, I don't dare water less often or they might cook.

---------------------------------------------
UPDATE:

Hydroseeded Tuesday afternoon, last night I thought MAYBE there was something coming up already. This morning at 9am when I went out for the first watering, there's thinly spread 1 inch seedlings all over already!
