Suffering from bald lawn syndrome? Dirt spots or patchy weeds? Rye seed is like Rogaine for your lawn and winter/ spring is the time to seed. This is an inexpensive way to avoid the re-sodding and can help patchy areas fill in later. The Rye seed is cheap and easily hand spread. It grows well in shade diring the mild winters and fills in the dirt/ bald areas. When summer comes the Rye will die, leaving a nutient-rich / soil-stabilizing mat for the grass to grow over. Call me if you have questions.
