Host Richard Hentschel discusses what we can expect from our lawns that are recovering from the drought in 2012. Thin lawns will need help in filling in. Topdressing and overseediing is the typical method used. Use high quality disease resistant seed. In 2013 getting the lawn healthy is the goal and not focus on weeds this year. Be sure the seed stays moist throughout the germination process.
