Professionally Researched. (What's this?)
Stake out the area where you will plant your seeds. Measure the area. Multiply the length times the width to find the area.
Choose what seeds to plant. You must know how big the the plant will spread to give you a general idea of the amount of spacing needed between each seed. You can leave a little less space between each plant if you want the plants to grow close together. Generally you can reduce the amount of spacing by a fourth. If your plants spread 2 feet, or 24 inches, multiply 24 times a fourth or 0.75, which tells you to plant a seed every 18 inches.
Lay a yardstick or tape measure onto the ground. Place a marker or dig a hole at the distance you determined the plants would spread. When measuring, start from the center of the hole and measure out the distance you need. You can use a flag as a marker, or rocks or spray paint made for the lawn.
