Growing Grass in Atlanta Update After Two Weeks

Tomorrow will mark two weeks from the day I aerated and seeded my backyard with fescue grass.  I started out with weeds and dirt, and am making my way towards some lush green goodness.  Here is a picture showing you the progress.

There are several things that I have done differently this time around.  For one I have the area roped off which has done a pretty good job of keeping the kids and dog out of the area. That and consistent watering have probably been the biggest factors.  I wrote all about the initial process here https://carsonmatthewsblog.wordpress.com/2011/09/23/growing-grass-in-atlanta/ explaining every step plus the ingredients.  Hopefully the spots will fill in over the next few weeks before the leaves really start falling.
