How to Plant New Grass Seeds
Occasionally a homeowner will need to plant new grass seed in areas worn by foot traffic, or in a spot that does not receive enough sunlight to grow grass properly. These bare patches of dirt or dead grass can be unsightly. No matter what the reason, planting new grass seed is an easy task that can be done successfully by almost anyone.
Tips & Warnings
If you have shady areas where grass is difficult to grow, make it easier by selecting a variety that tolerates shade like fine fescues. Homeowners can also improve light penetration under trees by trimming selected branches from the lower third of the tree, according to University of Missouri Extension.
