Dirt and seed

Asked September 26, 2018, 4:04 PM EDT

I put dirt and seed down 2 weeks ago. I have areas where the rain has packed down the dirt. Should I loosen the soil and wait ? Or loosen soil and apply new seed?

Did you apply grass seed? I wouldn't worry about loosening the soil. Unless seed washed away in heavy rain, you shouldn't need to over seed again now. I would assess in the spring and decide if you need more seed then.
