The proper power equipment was brought into the rear yard where the grassy area is and and the process of detaching, aerating, and vacuuming up the debris was done. Next the seed was placed. A roller drum was used to disperse the top dressing to cover the seed. The sprinklers were tested and the fertilizer watered in. Next, a blower was used to clean the rear patio that was used to access the grass. The pebbles showed tracks from the power equipment being brought in and it was raked to even it out again. The irrigation clock, using a separate program, was set to lightly water the new seed several time a day until germination. Since I asked for the overseeding apart from the "deal" i purchased from Angie's list, I will receive a small bill for this extra work in about a week's time. Since I have a dog, I was cautioned to keep the dog away from the lawn for a couple of days until the fertilizer is completely watered in from the daily irrigation. I do not yet know how the lawn will react to these measures, nor if the seed will germinate well.
