Need Advice :/
So I have been thinking about my front bank lawn renovation and this is my situation:
I have substantial growth from my initial seeding 13 days ago but it is not as thick as tall fescue needs to be...
The straw that I put down does not seem to be doing anything and in fact since it was such a light covering it seems to possibly have hindered the seed?
I have spots where no germination occurred and now there is some algae forming on top!
I want to reseed and cover areas with compost but I have two questions:
1) Will the seed germinate on top of soil that has some algae on it? I will be topdressing it with pure compost.
2) Will I hurt the seedlings that have grown by accidentally covering some up with the compost?
Thank you everyone you have been so helpful through this.
Let me know what you think!
