Establishing a Lawn

Dr. Trey Rogers has a few tips for establishing a lawn from seed:

  • Trimming is crucial for planting. Plant in late fall or early spring for cool season grasses. Warm season grasses should be planted in late spring or early summer.
  • For new construction homes consider a soil test to determine if the soil is sub-soil instead of topsoil.
  • When adding amendments avoid adding sand if possible because it can have the effect of creating concrete.
  • Choose seed that is of high quality (usually costs a bit more too). Avoid any seed that contains more than .01% of weed seed.
