I have spread fresh loam and will be seeding the lawn shortly. For seed I will be using Shady Nooks (in heavily shaded areas under maples) and sun and shade mixture in the sunnier areas. I will be putting down Mag-i-cal and Love your Lawn-Love Your Soil with the seeding. For fertilizer should I use Crabgrass Preventer Plus New Seeding Lawn Fertilizer or should I use New Seeding fertilizer and use the Crabgrass Preventer Plus New Seeding Lawn Fertilizer in mid May? Any other tips would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Matthew - We would recommend using our New Seeding Lawn Fertilizer now the same day you seed along with Mag-I-Cal and Love Your Lawn-Love Your Soil. Wait until the new grass has been mowed 2-3 times and then apply the Crabgrass Preventer plus Green-Up Lawn Fertilizer. This product controls crabgrass both before and after it germinates. This will give your lawn a chance to get established and mowed a couple of times before doing a weed control. For more information please visit: http://youtu.be/Gh3CwpJjug4
