I need to overseed the lawn. Do I seed before or after the early spring TurfBuilder feeding? Is there a specific time frame between the two? I'm near Cincinnati, Oh if region makes a difference.

You can overseed first and then apply a slow-release fertilizer, all on the same day. The seeds will germinate before the coating on the fertilizer granules weathers away enough to release fertilizer. Or, you can overseed now, wait 2 weeks and then broadcast your fertilizer.

Hope this clarifies things!
