The Q&A Archives: When to Reseed lawn

Question: I planted a new lawn in June 08. The weeds are terrible. I just put down the starter fertlizer with weed killer because I want to reseed/over seed. Is it ok to do this now - 4/09. I live in Quincy MA.

Answer: It's a few weeks too early to reseed and expect immediate results. The seeds will just sit there until the weather warms up a bit. I'd wait another 2-3 weeks and then broadcast the seeds. They will be more apt to germinate quickly - before hungry birds find them!
