My lawn has recently been leveled and needs to be seeded, what is the best method? Do I need to cover it up? How often do I water? And how much?

Use a rotary or drop spreader to spread the seed. Rake very lightly to barely half cover the seed and then roll lightly (do not fill the roller full) to assure good seed to soil contact, cover with a very thin layer of straw to help shade the ground and keep it evenly moist. Then water as needed to keep it evenly moist until it germinates. There is no set schedule, it will depend on the weather.
