Tips to over-seed a lawn
If the weather, pets, or other factors make your lawn looking sad, it is time to reinvigorate it by overseeding. Some tips for success:
the best overseeding time is spring or fall, as cool temperature and rains help you
before overseeding, mow your lawn shorter than usually and remove the clippings to allow the seeds get on the soil
rake the bare or thin areas vigorously to loosen the soil and to remove debris
for thickening up purposes, apply at half the recommended rate
for patching up purposes, apply at the full the recommended rate
apply a thin layer of topsoil on patched up areas
keep the area moist by frequent light watering until the seed is established
depending on the grass species, under ideal growing conditions, some seeds will germinate one week, while others will take four weeks
