Fertilizer application and overseeding

Asked September 19, 2019, 9:27 AM EDT

Hello, I received the soil test results for my lawn. It says to apply about 3.5 lbs of nitrogen and potassium per 1,000 sq feet. I plan to overseed my lawn soon, should the fertilizer be applied before or after overseeding and how much time in between?

More or less at the same time would be fine. You don't want to be treading on your new grass sprouts to apply fertilizer.

OK, thank you very much!
