For sandy soils, adding compost over the newly planted seeds can help the seed germinate and will also provide nutritious value to the dirt. It will also help keep the seed warm later in the season, or when temperatures are not ideal.
I would give this a 5 star except I have to consider the effort it takes. This seed makes a beautiful low maintenance lawn but getting it started is a great deal of time and planning. you must follow the instructions and water water water until it is established.
Purchase process and shipping/delivery time is 5 stars.
But, So far overall it is 1 star.
Planted seeds per seeding guidelines in south VA on April 10, now is May 5th and still there is no germination.
