fertilize on dry or wet grass?
I'm going to put some more fertilizer down. It rained yesterday. Should I wait until the grass is good and dry (which may not be until tomorrow since it's supposed to be cloudy today) or is it okay to spread fertilizer on damp grass? Also, should I cut the grass before or after I do the fertilizer? I've cut it one time since planting it 24 days ago. The ground was soft because I've been watering to keep the seeds damp and the lawn mower made some ruts, which I tried to smooth out some afterwards by walking over the edges of the ruts. Pivoting the lawnmower was the hardest part of the mowing. Any suggestions? It's been 4 weeks since the first fertilizer was put down (before topsoil added and seed planted). The grass is coming in nicely, though some areas are still sort of sparse. I trust that it will fill in over time. There are a couple of clumps which are too thick. Would it help to thin those out? If so, would it be better to pull some sprigs out or use scissors?
