Does your lawn suffer from thin growth or bare spots? Early fall may be the right time to address these issues with dormant grass seeding. Ensure germination and lush growth in the spring by following these tips from Environmental Landscaping.
What is Dormant Seeding?
Dormant grass seeding is when you apply seed when temperatures are low enough to prevent germination, but the ground hasn’t frozen yet. Dormant seeding helps to fill out bare spots, thin grass, or areas with poor growth to encourage a beautiful lawn once spring arrives.
Tips for Fall Lawn Seeding
The success of dormant seeding depends on many of the same factors as planting grass at other times of the year. Follow these tips to see positive results.
Select the Proper Grass Seed
Choosing the right type of grass for your lawn can be a challenge. The most important consideration is whether the grass is a cool season or warm season, which determines how well it will grow in your climate.
If you know what type of grass already grows in your yard, plant seeds of the same species to fill in bare spots. If not, let Environmental Landscaping help you choose between the most popular options, including Kentucky bluegrass, fescue, ryegrass and Bermuda
