Answer: Grass seeds usually take 10-14 days to germinate and keeping the area moist is really important so water several times a day if necessary to keep the seeds from drying out. It can take several months for a newly seeded lawn to thicken up so be patient. When the new grass is about 3 inches high you can mow it. After you've mowed 3 times you can fertilize it. I'd use a time release fertilizer that your broadcast with a spreader or a liquid fertilizer that you can apply with a hose attachment. Once your lawn is established you can feed in April, June, September and November to help it grow lush and thick. Enjoy!
