Know Your Grass Seed
Always read the seed label and understand the type of grass seed that you are establishing. Quality seed is one of the most relevant aspects of your lawn.
Tips for reading a seed label:
Over-seeding damaged areas:
Fall and Spring are both great times to fill in bare or damaged areas of your lawn from seed. Any stressed areas from this season will need over-seeding to completely recover. Over-seeding is also a good practice to introduce more disease resistant strands of grasses into a lawn. Core aeration can be a good way to provide a seed bed for new seeds to germinate. Purchasing quality turf grass seed for reestablishing lawns or establishing new lawns is critical to the future success of the lawn. Annual ryegrass germinates rapidly and will grow throughout the summer but in almost all instances will die in the winter and leave the area bare the following year. Perennial Ryegrass is a good nurture grass to help other grasses fill in and germinate. It is often included in high quality seed mixes. Tall fescue is a very drought-tolerant, deep-rooted grass, it does however have a wider rougher textured blade. Kentucky bluegrass is the most widely used turf grass in our area. Land-Art is currently offering core aeration and over seeding services, as well as core aeration with our exclusive potassium treatment.
