The Q&A Archives: fertilizing & sowing grass seed

Question: I purchased the Vigoro fertilizer (no weed killer in it) for my lawn. There are many bare spots in the lawn. Can I spread grass seed and seed starter at the same time of applying the fertilizer?

Answer: Your fertilizer is time release which means that each little granule is encapsulated in biodegradeable material. So, the fertilizer will be released slowly over a period of months. Therefore, it is safe to rake the bare areas and overseed, then broadcast the fertilizer over the entire lawn. The grass will be up and growing before too much fertilizer is released. Best wishes with your lawn!
