Plant Seeds This Fall for a Lush Lawn Next Spring!
Follow these 3 easy steps to establish a new lawn:
1. Prepare the Soil
Before planting grass seed, it’s important to prepare the soil. Till the soil by raking 6 inches deep and applying compost and additional topsoil, as needed. For optimal success, perform soil tests to determine other additives needed to attain the perfect soil pH for growth. Visit your local hardware store or county extension office for soil testing.
2. Seed the Lawn
After preparing the soil, spread grass seed. Cover the grass seed with straw or hay to help control moisture and light. Keep the area moist for 6 weeks to ensure long-term success. If you’re diligent about watering, you’ll see new growth in as little as 1-2 weeks.
3. Fertilize the Lawn
With any new growth comes the concern for weeds. No one wants dandelions and clover in the spring. The best time to prevent weeds is by spreading a fertilizer with herbicide lawn application in the fall. This winterizing treatment will strengthen grass while deterring weeds.
