watering new lawn

regina dooley asked 12 years ago

My new lawn(about 3/4 acre) was sown the beginning of June this year and has come up well in some places but patchy in others.The ground seems to be quite dry however and I can still see seeds that haven’t sprouted.Should i water it in the evening time during this dry weather or will the sparse showers forecasted be enough?Would watering improve it?Can it be over-watered?

One thing that is very reliable is rain and when it falls your new lawn will sort itself out. No watering needed. If there are thin patches in a month’s time simply scatter out seed on those areas.
