Answer: You should be all set. Usually I recommend either raking the seed in lightly, or using a lawn roller over a newly-seeded area. This is to ensure that there is adequate contact between the seed and the soil surface. But often watering with a sprinkler will do the trick just fine. Just be sure the straw is laid down thin enough so the little grass seedlings can poke through (but thick enough to discourage birds from stealing your seed!) Keep the soil moist, try not to walk on it, and, as long as the soil is adequately fertile, you should have yourself a beautiful lawn.
