If you are one of the many people who wish they had a better lawn, and your current lawn seems to be on it’s last leg, then seeding your lawn with new grass seed may be just what you need. There are several types of grass to choose from but only specific types will grow best in your area.

You should contact a local lawn care or landscape company, or your local supplier of lawn care supplies. Once you have the right seed, here are a few tips to get the most out of your investment.

Temperature

The Temperature is very important when you are growing grass from seed. The see prefers temperatures between 45F – 75F, which means you should not seed in the winter or summer months. The best way to tell if it’s the right time to seed in your area, is to check for dew on the lawn. If there is moisture readily available then it is time to seed.

Watering

The seedlings that grow from grass seed need all of the water they can get to grow fast and strong. You should water everyday for the first twenty to thirty days after seeding your lawn with new grass seed.

Soil Contact

Growing grass seedlings need good soil to mature. Seedlings will grow without soil, and will appear to be healthy and mature, but without good contact with soil, the grass will soon die. The seed should be just below the soil surface if possible, but ensuring the seed makes contact with the soil is the important thing to remember. Grass seed that is buried too deep will not grow. Making a small hole the size of the end of your finger, filling it with seed, and covering with soil is ideal.
