How to Use Miracle Grow on Newly Seeded Grass


Sometimes starting new grass can seem like a tiring, endless process. Bare patches appear to take forever to grow in. Some of these problems could be caused by a nutrient deficiency. Sometimes the grass just will not grow well even if the soil and moisture are correct. Miracle-Gro can provide missing essential nutrients.

Step 1

Fill the Miracle-Gro Garden Feeder with Miracle-Gro Lawn Food. Attach to the end of a garden hose.

Step 2

Set the dial on the Miracle-Gro Garden Feeder to the setting indicated on the lawn-food packaging.

Step 3

Spray the lawn thoroughly in an even sweeping pattern with the Miracle-Gro lawn food. Apply so that the newly seeded lawn and seedlings are thoroughly moist.

Step 4

Refill the container as necessary with more Miracle-Gro Lawn Food and keep spraying the lawn until it is sufficiently covered.

Step 5

Repeat this process every week or two until you get a lush, thick and green lawn. Repeat monthly to maintain your lawn's health and vigor.

Tips and Warnings

  • Keep the spray out of your eyes. The chemicals in the Miracle-Gro can be an irritant.
