Simple Steps to Overseed with Ace Hardware
Ace Hardware is the place to go to get that grass looking green and beautiful for this Arizona winter! Walk into a local Ace where a friendly, knowledgeable associate is waiting to walk customers through what is needed step-by-step for a perfect lawn.

Before getting started, make sure the weather is right! It's time to plant winter grass when the night time temperature is consistently 70 degrees or cooler. Once that happens, it's time to mow the lawn low. Cut the grass shorter than normal. Then, rake to remove any dead grass and thatch. Thatch rakes or power rakes make this process quick and easy!

Now that lawn is ready for ryegrass seed. Use 6 to 10 lbs per 1000 square foot using a handheld drop spreader. Apply a starter fertilizer to the soil after the seed has been put down, such as manure. Then, cover the seed and fertilizer with a topping such as compost or a compost/manure mixer. This will help to retain the moisture the seeds need and protect newly laid seeds from becoming bird food!
And just like that, planters are on their way to the lawn they love!

Don't forget to water! It's best to set sprinklers to water 3-4 times a day for 6-8 minutes at a time. Watering is very important, but try to not overwater either! As the seed begins to sprout, decrease the watering to twice per day. When the grass is fully established in about 28 days, setting sprinklers to water twice a week for 25 minutes keeps them green and healthy.
