Hi all! I am a new home owner and recently seeded our ground with a blend of grasses recommended to us by a local garden shop. The seed is high quality, we are watering frequently in short 5 minute segments approximately 4 times in a 12 hour period. I prepared the ground by tilling with a hoe, raking, and pulling up all weeds by the roots. So what's the problem? Well, we seeded in June and it seems like the lawn is still so sparse. We did not seed it in various directions nor did we lightly cover up the seed as I now know we were supposed to. Does this mean we failed, or is it possible it is just taking longer than I expected? Any help or advice would be fantastic! Thanks!

wavey fescuebaby,
the possible resulting problems from not covering up the seed could be: blown away by the wind/breeze or eaten by birds and mice and such.
has there been any growth at all? you may want to re-seed some. i'm not the best to offer advice on lawn care but i hope this hels some wink

That is an appropriate name. I agree on the washing or wafting away on the seed. It will take a couple of attempts to fully reach the desired look. I still spot seed myself. If there has been any crab grass killer laid in the ground that to will inhibit new growth. Fall is best time to plant.
