Bermuda seeding with Princess77. This is step 2 where we are doing most of the labor portion of the job. We need to get our 70% of the existing dead stuff, apply the seed, ensure good seed to soil contact, cover with Peat Moss of protection and apply Milorganite for a slow release push of nitrogen.
This job overall took about 7 full hours with a few breaks in between as it’s still in the higher 80s here in Florida!

This year I’m taking you through a lawn treatment program that I developed. This is step #1 and should be applied in early spring, right after the ground begins to thaw, prior to any vigorous turf growth. I also recommend you toss some grass seed in the thin spots in conjunction with this first application of fertilizer.
Keep in mind, I recommend a hybrid lawn care program that starts with smart use of chemicals (mainly for weed control) and synthetic fertilizers couples with organics. This program is for lawns in bad shape – and we use the hybrid approach to get fast results – then take the lawn, over time, to a 100% organic treatment program. Here is a video I did on “how much fertilizer do I put on the lawn?” that will be helpful to you as you apply fert this season: http://youtu.be/qMJf4m82VcI
