Hi, This may sound like a dumb question but I would like to know how to overseed my lawn.Do I just throw the seed down over the lawn or must I dig up the area first and what fertilizer should be used.Also when is the best time to do it?

Excellent question and now is the time to overseed. No, the seed cannot simply be thrown on the lawn. Please read over our website's pub about overseeding which includes step by step instructions: http://extension.umd.edu/sites/default/files/_images/programs/hgic/Publications/HG102%20Lawn%20Estab...
