Mowing: Mow at 1.5 - 2.5 inches. If used to overseed warm-season grasses, gradually reduce the height of the ryegrass in the spring by mowing it more closely and more often to encourage growth of warm-season grasses as they come out of dormancy.
Fertilizing: Fertilize using 4 lbs. nitrogen/1000 sq. ft. per year during the period of active growth (February - June; October - December). For best results, use Lesco's Starter Fertilizer 18-24-12
Seeding Rate: Seed at 6 - 9 lbs./1000 sq. ft. Ryegrass seed germinates quickly: 3 - 5 days in moderate temperatures. A rapid turf cover is established within 4 - 8 weeks. Irrigate frequently. Water to a depth of 6 - 12 inches. If used to overseed warm-season grasses, water deeply and less often in the spring to encourage the growth of warm-season grasses coming out of dormancy.
If used in overseeding, first reduce the height of the bermuda grass down to a minimum of .5 inches. Remove any excess clipping to provice good seed to soil contact for germination.
