It’s as simple as this: Paint the middle of the bare spot with Humic12. Literally, paint it black. There is no real mix rate here - just get the bare spot black soaked, black, and put a little water on it to get it into the soil a bit. This will stimulate activity in the soil almost immediately.
From there, fill up your pump sprayer with RGS at 3oz/gallon and go ahead and spray the entire lawn (1 gallon covers 1,000 square ft)… but when you get to those bare spots, soak the edges of the bare spot (where there is growing St Aug or Bermuda) with the RGS mix. Get those edges good and dripping wet.
This still stimulates root growth, as well as rhizome and/or stolon growth.
This is also why we sell these two products together in a 2 pack. They really do work together in this manner and can be used in any new seed job you do, or in conjunction with sodding or plugging. There really isn’t a way to hurt anything - only help - so feel free to spray and pray!
This powerful 1-2 punch should really come in handy as we get into the rainy summer patterns that many of us in coastal areas often see this time of year. Think of it as putting medicine on a wound to make it heal faster. Cool right?
