  1. Cut, moss control, power rake and/or aerate
  2. Top dress with:
    • fish compost, or
    • soil amender, or
    • premium mix, or
    • any combination of the above
  3. Compact dressed areas
  4. Fertilize with ‘Turf starter’ and rake in lightly
  5. Seed areas with appropriate seed mixture (shade, high traffic, full sun)
  6. Press seed into bed with rounded end of fan rake to ensure good seed contact with the soil
  7. Keep seed bed moist (water early mornings and evenings)

Germination should occur in 7–10 days (conditions permitting).
