Steps For a Successful Creeping Red Fescue Lawn

Step 1 Planting Creeping Red Fescue

Planting Creeping red Fescue In A New Lawn

  • Conduct a soil test.**
  • Till to a depth of 4”-6”.
  • Rake to smooth and remove debris from seed bed.

Overseeding Or Re-seeding Lawns With Creeping red Fescue

  • Conduct a soil test.**
  • Mow or clip grass as closely as possible.
  • Remove clippings and rake
  • Aerate soil (rake or harrow lightly) where existing grass is to allow new seed to make contact with the soil. (Existing grass will not be affected.)

**A soil test is recommended to determine the pH. Lawns prefer a pH between 6.0 - 7.0.

Step 2 Planting Creeping Red Fescue

Fertilize And Add Lime To Soil As Needed

  • New Lawns - Fertilize (add lime if indicated from soil test) – not necessary to work into the soil.
  • Overseeding/Re-seeding Fertilize (add lime if indicated from soil test) – not necessary to work into the soil.

Step 3 Planting Creeping Red Fescue


How To Spread Creeping Red Fescue Seed

  • New Lawn - Spread seed evenly using a spreader, applying 1/2 of the recommended amount in one direction and the remaining 1/2 in the opposite direction to avoid skips and misses on your lawn.
  • Work seed into soil 1/4” deep.
  • Overseeding/Re-seeding - Same as New Lawn above.

Step 4 Planting Creeping Red Fescue

Watering your New Lawn

  • New Lawn - Water daily to maintain a constant source of moisture for the seed. Do not allow the top 1/2” of soil to become dry.
  • Once grass begins to grow and establishes a lawn, reduce watering to twice a week, 1/2” of water per application.
  • Overseeding/Re-seeding - Same as New Lawn above
