HOW TO PLANT NEW GRASS SEED FOR LANDSCAPING
BUY FINEST GRASS SEED
For working out your landscaping plan, it is important to have a great green lawn first. A great lawn is only possible with buying the best grass seed. When buying for the grass seed, look only for the NTEP verified variety. It means that the grass seeds with the NTEP verification have been evaluated and tried. It means that you are buying those grass seed which have been particularly bred for drought tolerance, insect and disease resistance and green grass color.
PREPARE THE SOIL BENEATH
For planting the new grass seed in place of the existing grass, mow the lawn as short as possible. Loosen the soil top one-fourth in bare surface spots. Remove the sticks, barks and debris from the lawn. The lawn should be clean of the debris. After that, there must be unleveled lawn areas. Level the lawn for an even surface so that the water might not collect in the uneven areas. Moreover, do not use the added soil to avoid weed. Use the previous top soil.
PLANT GRASS SEED
Now distribute the grass seed evenly all across the lawn. If you have a large lawn, try to spread the grass seed with a seed spreader or a mechanical grass seed spreader instead of using your hand to spread. Only plant 16 inch per sq. Feet. This way all the grass seeds will have room for nutrients and water. If you would disperse the grass seed closely, the grass would come out to be thin in some particular areas.
COVER THE GRASS SEED
Now cover the seed bed so that no more than one-fourth inch of soil distributes among the grass seed. If you want a fast growth, cover the seed bed with a seeding formula to allow the grass to retain temperature , nutrients and water.
To enhance the process of germination, try to keep the seed bed wet, dampened and moisturized. Do not water the grass seed deeply. Water frequently but lightly until the grass is at least two inches high. You new grass will grow in no time. Try to water the new grass regularly to retain the moisture.
Planting new grass seed is an essential part of landscaping. It improves the features of your lawn and keeps the lawn fresh and new.
