Thanks a bunch to all who provided suggestions on my previous post. I
basically dethatched, left most of the dead grass there as Chet suggested,
put down some lime & fertilizer, seeded with a slice-seeder (rye grass), and
covered with straw. It's a week later and I actually have a green lawn!
About how long should I wait before:
1. applying more starter fertilizer?
2. mowing (some of the seedlings are already 3-4 inches)?
Anything else I need to do at this point other than keep the ground moist?
Again, thanks to all who helped!
