How Long It Takes for Grass Seed to Grow: A Timeline

Keep New Grass Alive

The best home improvement and lawn care projects show immediate results. That’s why it’s so rewarding to plant flowers or paint a room. But, when it comes to grass seed, you’ll have to wait a few weeks before you see the fruits of your labor.

Grass Seed Growth Timeline

Growing conditions and the type of grass you choose greatly impacts the growing timeline and when you’ll see your results. Contact Green Lawn Fertilizing if you’d like help figuring out how long you should give your lawn to prosper after seeding. Here’s a general timeline for you to follow:

Day one: Plant your seeds. It’s particularly helpful if you aerate first because that gives seeds a cozy spot to settle and provides plenty of oxygen to the roots.

Day five: Ryegrass germination (up to day 10)

Day seven: Fescues germination (up to day 15)

Day 10: Bermuda germination (up to day 30); Bentgrass (up to day 15)

Day 14: Buffalo grass (up to day 28); Centipede grass (up to day 21)

Day 20: Blue grass (up to day 30)
