Be sure to use a shady mix grass seed containing fescues and perennial rye. (Most Kentucky Blue Grass varieties DO
NOT GROW WELL IN SHADE)

Grass must have good topsoil to grow well. Do not attempt to plant grass in sand if you want to have a pretty lush
thick lawn

Fertilize with 12-12-12 or 'GREEN START' fertilizer when you sow your seed to provide sufficient nutrient for the
new little seedlings

Keep the soil constantly moist while the seed is coming up. If you let it dry out, the little seedlings will die and you
will have to start over. Using a light covering of straw will help hold in moisture. Water every day and you may need
to water a couple times a day depending on the weather. Pay close attention to watering to be successful!

Cut as soon as grass blades get 2 inches high with a lawn mower with sharp blades.

Six weeks later, fertilize again.
