Seed You In September

If you are thinking about revitalizing or renovating your lawn, this is the time to assess and evaluate those trouble spots. We are approaching the fall seeding season within the next couple of weeks. The beginning of September to the middle of October is the ideal time to seed a lawn due to cool, moist growing conditions and reduced warm season weed competition. If you hit the timing right, it is amazing how fast a newly seeded lawn can take off with minimal effort. So don’t sweat the rust fungus or the burnt-up grass. Do a little touch-up in the upcoming weeks and your lawn should look fab in the spring.

Don’t forget:

Use starter fertilizer;
Pelletize lime (often forgotten or overlooked);
And most important, the best quality seed-mix; we strongly recommend using the latest, improved varieties of tall fescues and rye grass with little to no bluegrass. Fescues and ryes require a third less fertilizer and water than most bluegrasses. Remember, your largest water consumption is your lawn. So be conscious of what you plant and when you plant it. It could be our obsession with green lawns is our connection to its color. "Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises." ~ Pedro Calderon de la Barca, Spanish Poet and Playwright, 1600-1681
