I have a new house with no grass. Let me give some background. We closed on Nov 21, 2003. We live in PA. Right before closing, they hydroseeded the lawn and then covered it with hay. Of course, it snowed like a week later and was pretty much below freezing all winter. At the same time, we had severe winds and I'm sure some of the covering blew away (and who knows how much seed.) So, I'm just getting patchy growth at this point. I'm a watering fool and I reseeded the front lawn so far with a drop spreader. I have a couple of questions - since the ground is pretty hard and is still covered in hay, it reseeding fruitless? Second, and most important, is it possible to put too much seed down? I'm thinking of going over the front again but don't want to do more harm than good. And last, I want to put Starter Fertilizer down but I don't know if I should since the hydroseed from last Nov surely had fertilizer in it. Again, I don't want to do more harm than good. Any other tips are appreciated.
