      I just had my yard hydro-seeded recently. My yard consisted mostly of clay so I brought in some nutrient rich top soil which was spread around the yard 2-3" deep. After the grass began to germinate and grow, it was obvious that in certain areas the dirt was not spread evenly. The grass was growing slower in those areas (still healthy just slow in comparison to the rest of the yard). So at week 7 of our hydro-seeded lawn I used 'Scotts Turf Builder Starter Food for New Grass' to help advance these slow growing areas. I followed the instructions on the bag and spread it with a Scotts spreader set to my area. This product work fantastic! We are approaching week 9 and I can see significant growth happening in the slower areas as well as a rich thick grass in all other areas. I plan on using the Starter again in 4 weeks to continue this pattern of growth and build a solid root system for our new fescue grass.
