does a lime application affect seed germination?
We recently hired a lawn care co. to help us with our sad lawn. It is a large area and I simply didn't have the time or patience to learn how to do it all myself. they have applied the first treatment, a weed killer and fertilizer a couple of weeks ago. The grass does look better already (the recent rainy spell don't hurt either!) I also purchased a 50 lb. bag of seed to overseed the yard. I was going to do it this week, we have some nice weather projected, though this could be the last of it. I got a call last night from the co. saying the soil sample they took is calling for a lime application. I asked about seed germination and he said it would actually help it. but someone else told me no, I should apply the seed after. As we are running out of good weather for all of this I need to know which would be best. Thanks
