I am in the process of putting my new lawn in. I have graded the lawn
to the correct grade and then tilled it to a depth of 6". I spread
some starter fertilizer and am going to till again tonight. My
question is, what is the best way to firm up the seedbed now and seed?
I have a Kubota compact utility tractor and was thinking about getting
a pulverizer to go over the entire yard. I think this would help to
firm it up and get it ready for seeding. I actually need to use this
on my septic field anyway as I can't till that area.
Does this sound like it would work. The machine generally weighs about
800lbs. and has two pulverizer rollers. I think this would firm it up
as well as help to level it out so I can seed. If I did this, then I
would spread the seed and what would be best to get the seed into
contact with the dirt? Roll with a 1/2 full lawn roller?
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
