Planting grass this time of year is a pretty safe bet you're going to grow it. I like the idea I don't have to be out there watering it every day as I would if it were the middle of summer. One thing I like to do to the soil is amend it. I get a big bag of peat and some old manure and put it into the mix. It's just my way of supplying nutrients and other necessary ingredients. After you get it all tilled in, raked over smooth and your seed added nice and heavy, you cover with straw for protection.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a firm believer in fertilizers and I do add it to the lawn throughout the year. But giving the seed a good start, in a soil with a healthy source of food, means you'll probably never have to worry about it. You might wonder, why not just add trip-12 or some other type fertilizer to the dirt instead of taking all the time to till, rake and plant. That would cost a lot of extra money. Well, you'll burn your seed out and ruin your chances of a nice yard. Christians are like seeds. If someone takes the time to care for and protect them, give them the proper nutrients to grow (which is the word of God ) and love them, it's a pretty safe bet they'll grow and prosper right where they're planted. If you're one of those who likes to plant and help things grow, be careful not to pollute your works with too much manure. The old saying goes, "Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care."
