Similarly, it is asked, how do I use peat moss on my lawn?
When applying peat moss to soil before seeding a lawn, spread 1 to 3 inches of peat over the soil and work it in to a depth of about 6 inches. After seeding new lawns, apply a 1/4-inch layer of peat over the grass seeds. If you're laying sod, fill in the gaps between rows with peat to create more even seams.
Secondly, is it good to put peat moss over grass seed? Covering grass seed or seedlings with peat moss will not only protect the seeds from being washed or carried away, but it also helps to prevent the seeds from drying out and adds beneficial nutrients to the soil.
Similarly, you may ask, how much does 3 cu ft moat moss cover?
3.0 cu ft. will cover 142 sq. ft.
Should you put top soil over grass seed?
Spreading topsoil across your yard may seem like a simple way to protect your newly spread grass seeds from hungry birds, but these small seeds cannot force their way through heavy earth. In fact, a topsoil layer effectively suffocates your lawn before it even has a chance to grow.
