yeah, it seems that the weather last week has worked out well for me. i would have loved to wait until the conditions were ideal but me and my wife just couldnt stand having a bunch of mud with some weedy areas any longer.

i have the sprinklers going and some extra rain also. it doesnt seem like being under watered is going to be an issue. i am concerned about certain areas where there is some pooling. its small spots and not many so i am hoping that they work out.

Don't water so much as to allow water pooling on a just-seeded lawn. It's not a good thing, and you can in fact water TOO much!

its looks better from the side than it does from above. its like a man's thinning hair. im not sure what to expect coming up as far as filling in and getting dense.

the understanding always was that another seeding will be needed in the fall. so im happy so far.

i forgot about this thread. so over the course of the last couple of months a bunch of grass and a bunch of weeds shot up. it looked like 50% weed. it grew to be like a jungle and the lawn guy kept wanting to wait to do a cut. finally he cut it last week and even though there are tons of weeds, it looks pretty good. definitely going to do more seeding this fall but at least it looks decent now.
