The Right Time to Plant

Spring, Fall, or Dormant

The best time for planting is late summer to early fall because it’s a good time for germination, there’s less competition with annual weeds, and it gives the plants the longest time to mature before the next summer stresses.


Overseeding (Interseeding)

  • Mow the existing lawn very short (scalping) to allow sunlight to reach the soil.
  • Overseed with a broadcast spreader to distribute the seed.

New Seeding

  • Removal of existing lawn
  • Dig lawn up with tiller or sod cutter
  • Till the soil to a depth of 6 to 8 inches

Preparation of Soil

  • Improve soil texture: For clay soils, add organic matter & sand. For sandy soils, add organic matter like compost, peat moss, or manure. Till again.
  • Apply an organic starter fertilizer
  • Level the soil surface


  • Spread seed using a broadcast or drop seed spreader.
  • Rake in or tamp in the seed. This will give good “seed to soil” contact.
  • Mulch or blanket for best results.


The most critical step for establishment success. You need to keep the ground moist until the seedlings are up and established (2 to 3 inches tall). Use a method of frequent light watering, not once a day drenching.


Mowing frequency: once a week to once biweekly.

Mowing Height: 3 inches

LIMIT HERBICIDE AND INSECTICIDE USAGE! Herbicides and Insecticides will damage your flowering plants and pollinating insects.

No need to add Nitrogen by fertilizing the soil. The clover will fixate Nitrogen in soils.
