Subject: New grass seed - thin, and ground getting uneven!
"I planted grass in a circular type area about 10' diameter, with "new"
dirt. The grass is coming up, but kind of sparse. We've had a lot of
here (Zone 4, I believe), so dryness isn't a problem. In fact, the rain
"unevened" the surface, and I'm afraid ruts will form.
Since there is sparse grass coming up, is there any way to even the
now? Can I rake it out a little bit? "
It might help if we knew what *KIND*
of grass you planted. If it was
fescue, which is a clump grass, it won't spread very much to fill in.
If it was bluegrass, which spreads by rhizomes, it will probably be
just fine. In any case, just leave it for a while and let it grow and
see what happens. Fescue takes 21 days just to germinate, and
bluegrass even longer. Patience, Grasshopper.
