What Is Some Essential Information You Should Know About Seeding a Lawn?

There is really a lot to learn about seeding a lawn. It is not difficult, but it does require that you do things properly in order to get the results that you want. The first thing you should do is you should start out by taking the time to prepare the soil. If it is new soil, you may want to use a Rototiller and then level it with a soil rake before planting. If it is an existing sod that you’re trying to seed, you may want to prepare either by using a power rake and running the rake over the lawn, by using a lawn stitcher, or by using a lawn aerator. All of these tools are designed to make it easier for you to seed your lawn and have success.

The second thing that you should do when seeding lawn is to make sure that you have high-quality grass seed. Having high-quality grass goes a long way and helps to improve the overall look of your lawn. Not all grass is the same. As a matter fact, some grasses are really ugly and won’t improve your lawn all. By taking the time to use good seed, you make sure that you increase the beauty of your lawn every time you seed it.

The last thing that you need to make sure to do right when you are seeding a lawn, is you need to make sure that you water it enough. Often people will not water their lawn enough. They think that if they water two or three times, then the grass seed will come in. However, it generally takes at least a week for the grass seed to germinate. The whole time it is germinating, it needs to be kept moist. If the grass dries out after it has started to germinate, it probably won’t grow. Make sure that you keep on watering your lawn on a regular basis until it comes in fully. Be careful not to over water because if you over water, you can wash away the grass seed that is on your lawn.

The last thing that you should know about seating a lawn is that you want to avoid putting a lot of traffic on the lawn for the first 6 to 8 weeks. A lot of people don’t think it takes eight weeks for the lawn to come in, but it really does. This is because for the first eight weeks, the grass is not established and it is still growing. You actually have to move over it once or twice before it will start to feel out and look nice. A lot of people think that seeding a lawn is easy, but sometimes it can take up to 12 weeks for the lawn to be fully established. Until it is fully established, you want to avoid excessive amounts of traffic across your lawn because it could damage the young grass.
