It has been about three weeks since I had the sand topping done. I did not mow it for about two weeks. I kept it watered until I got about 4" of rain a week ago. None of the sand washed away. I got another 2" this week. I raised up my level on the mower to let it grow more. It is slowly covering up the bald areas and it is seeding.

Being the temperatures (66 this morning) are getting lower I am starting to think about fertilizer. I would love to know what and when to use. I normally just buy weed-n-feed in the spring and winterguard in the fall. I have bermuda and I live in NW Arkansas.

If you are overseeding, you might want to drop your deck about an inch as you won’t be cutting for about 2 weeks,

It’s early November, don’t make the mistake of dropping your mower deck and end up cutting your lawn too short.

The mower is set on 4, which I assume is 4 inches. I’m going to try it on 5 next time, because it still seems short to me.

Not sure if the numbers relate to inches. Best bet is to park on a solid surface and measure from the ground up to the cutting edge of the blade.

I've always looked for ideas, when it comes to trying to establish a beautiful lawn. Some things mentioned here, I take with a grain of salt. My lawn guy mows mine at 3 inches, always has, and he mows it "checkerboard" fashion. During the summer, dry months, I irrigate, but not alot. Last week, we applied Scotts Weed/Feed and then overseeded. In early Spring, I'll treat it again. My beautiful lawn is the talk of the town!

Without actually measuring it, no way of knowing what those numbers associate with, but I seriously doubt they are inches.

I’m no pro, but I never put a weed killer down when seeding, even a post emergent.
