Every time I try to sow an area of lawn (part of my existing lawn) I fail miserably even using expensive seed, preparing the ground and covering with top soil. What am I doI got wrong? Thank you. G. Mc Carten



How are you preparing the ground beforehand? And what times of year have you attempted this? And have you tried it when you've applied weedkiller or weed/feed/mosskiller to the lawn generally?

You may be covering the seed too thickly.

I agree with Steragram just sprinkle on surface and very lightly cover or just lightly rake in

Also, how much shade is there? Few lawn grasses can take light shade, and almost none can take heavy shade.
