How to use

If over-seeding an existing lawn, cut the grass first. Then apply Espoma Organic Lawn Starter with a drop or broadcast spreader and be certain to overlap slightly for better coverage. After seeding or sod installation, water and keep the area moist with light frequent watering until the new grass has been cut twice. After that time resume normal watering.

Application Rate: Apply at a rate of 12 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft.
Use spreader settings below or spreader manufacturer recommendations.

Spreader Model Spreader Setting
All Scotts® Drop Spreaders 9
All Scotts® Broadcast Spreaders 10
All Earthway Broadcast Spreaders 22

The above spreader settings will vary according to the rate of walk and the mechanical condition of the spreader. Adjustment to the spreader setting may be required to apply the proper amount.
