Revive Your Lawn

If your lawn didn’t fare so well during our long hot days now is the best time of year to put down grass seed. YES, now. This time of year is even better then spring. Why? The soil is warmer, the day and night temperatures are warmer and we tend not to have the huge temperature fluctuations. All of this combined helps the seed germinate and grow. Seeding now ensures that you will have a better looking lawn come spring.

Remember to buy the right type of grass seed for your conditions - sun or shade and put down a seed starting fertilizer at the same time that you seed. Keep the seeds/soil moist and you should see the grass germinating in 7-10 days.
I’ll be out tonight, putting down some grass seed on the slope in front of my house. I have to keep the lawn looking good for the neighbors across the street.

Have a good day.
