TOP 10 SEEDING QUESTIONS:
1. HOW OFTEN SHOULD I WATER?
You should water every day for the first 21 days for germination to occur. THEN continue to water on a normal watering schedule to continue to promote growth.
2. HOW MUCH SHOULD I WATER?
You should water your newly seeded lawn every day for at least 20 minutes per section
3. WHAT TIME OF DAY SHOULD I WATER?
It is always best to water in the morning.
4. SHOULD I WATER EVEN THOUGH IT RAINED?
Yes, even though it has rained we recommend watering your lawn. Your perception of the amount of rain isn’t always the “actual” amount of rain. Always better to be safe than sorry.
5. WHEN CAN I MOW MY LAWN AFTER SEEDING IS DONE?
Since no chemical’s were applied to the lawn there are no restrictions for mowing after seeding is done.

7. WHEN CAN MY WEEDS BE SPRAYED AFTER SEEDING IS DONE?
Once the new seed has taken off and is mowing height it will be safe to spray with herbicide to control weeds.
8. MY LAWN WAS SEEDED WHY DON’T I SEE ANY SEED?
Your lawn was seeded today why don’t you see any seed? The seed that Creative Lawn Care uses if the highest quality premium seed we could find. Unfortunately that means it is also so fine that our customers have a hard time seeing it when we seed their lawns. It also is a light brown color so it blends well with soil.
9. HOW LONG SHOULD MY KIDS AND PETS STAY OFF THE LAWN ONCE IT SEEDED?
Since there aren’t any chemicals applied to the lawn there are no restrictions. But it may be messy with the cores from the core aeration…
10. IS OVERSEEDING A GUARANTEED SERVICE?
