We at Empire Yard Maintenance use a unique way of seeding and re-seeding lawns. We use a 4 step process that, when watered correctly, has a 95% success rate. First we start by laying down a healthy base of new soil. Second we lay down the grass seed on top of the new soil base. Third we lay down a paper pellet called grass seed accelerator. This product serves several purposes; first it soaks up 8 times its weight in water to keep the seed moist during the germination period, then it has a small amount of fertilizer in it to jump start the seed once it has germinated. Last we apply a thin layer of topsoil to protect the seed from the sun and any animals that may be after it.
