@alex94: We have fescue grass and we tilled the area first. Early fall is the best time to plant fescue. Once you have finished tilling, level the ground by raking it. Remove any hills or holes.
It’s time to plant the seeds. You can do it by hand but it is much easier to use a lawn seeder. There are some very inexpensive models that you can buy. This ensures that the seed is planted evenly.
Once the seeds are sowed, rake over the seeded area so that the seeds are lightly covered. An ideal covering is ¼ inch.
Water the area daily until it starts germinating. If it rains, you don’t need to re-water. Add fertilizer at different intervals throughout the growing season.
