Top Five Grass Seed Tips
April 12, 2018
Seeding is the most important part of your lawn care checklist because, without it, you’d have either dirt yard or a patchy mess. Use these tips to set yourself up for success.
Top Five Grass Seed Tips to Get Your Lawn Green
1. Aerate and seed
The two should always go hand-in-hand. Aeration allows air, water, and nutrients to circulate through your lawn by creating small holes in the soil. The small openings create the ideal space for the new grass seeds to root.
2. Seed at the proper time
Your lawn will have the best chance to thrive if you aerate and seed in the fall around the first frost. If you’ve already missed this opportunity, overseed in the early spring.
3. Choose the right type of grass
Where do you live? Is your lawn shady or full-sun? These are important questions to ask when you want beautiful green grass. Not every grass will excel in all areas, so it’s valuable to do this research before you head to the store. As a local company, the professionals at Green Lawn Fertilizing know the ins and outs of your area and the type of grass that will thrive.
4. Have the right tools
Using the right tools for your green lawn project will give you a better chance for success and will prevent frustration from ensuing. There are a variety of options for aerating including attachments for garden tools you already own, funky shoes with spikes, and a roller you push through your lawn. And for seeding, we recommend getting a proper seeder if you have a big area to cover, but throwing seeds by hand works well for small sections.
