  • Grass seed

    Hello all. Just joined today. I am in New Jersey and not a lawn professional. Have a question about grass seed. First let me explain what the situation is. I just had a new front walkway installed and half of the front yard landscaped. This left quite a bit of bare spots that the contractor placed fresh top soil and grass seed. This was 8 days ago. I have been watering the areas every day. First time is around 3pm and the second time is just before dark right around 730pm to 8pm. I am seeing quite a bit of germination in certain areas and bare spots in others.

    How long should I wait before assuming that the bare spots will not grow in? I have no idea what type of grass seed or brand was used. So I am unsure how long it will take for the grass to grow. Would it be a safe bet that after two weeks time if I do not see germination that it is safe to assume that any remaining grass seed has died? How long should I wait before trying to seed the bare areas to get the lawn complete?

    Sorry that was more than one question. Need some assistance. Thanks in advance

    If you are watering every day and it has not grown after 2 weeks then its safe to assume it will not grown
