Tips for Seeding Your Lawn in October

Oct 31, 2018 | Uncategorized

While you eagerly prepare your lawn for Halloween festivities and the rush that is sure to come that night, start thinking about seeding and feeding your lawn. Many lawn care professionals recommend performing this task as the weather begins to cool down.

However, the process isn’t cut and dry. In order to get the job done right, you need to follow these five tips for seeding and feeding your lawn in all of the right ways.

1.  Timing is Everything When Seeding Your Lawn

Knowing the type of grass is extremely important when you are trying to choose the right time of the year to seed. Planting at the right time will help your grass thrive and grow at a healthy pace. Of course, all of these efforts also depend heavily on the weather patterns experienced in your area at the time of seeding. During the cooler seasons, you will want to plant grass varieties like:

  • Bentgrass
  • Bluegrass
  • Ryegrass

2.  Grab the Right Seeds

Many homeowners mistakenly believe that grass is simply grass and any seed will do. The truth is, your lifestyle, location, and amount of cash you are willing to put into your lawn will dictate the type of seeds that you will need to purchase for your reseeding.

By getting with your local lawn care expert, you can quickly come to a conclusion about the type of grass that is most suitable for your Frisco yard. Don’t take the risk of wasting your time and find out what grass works for you in order to get the job done right the first time.

3.  Get Your Soil Ready for Seeding

We suggest getting your soil tested to ensure that it is not too acidic for your new seeds to thrive. A lawn care professional can have this test done and give you the answers that you need.

If your soil needs a little TLC, you can always add in the recommended nutrients that your soil needs. After this, you will need to physically prepare your soil for the seeding.

In order to best prep your soil you will need to completely remove your existing grass and ensure that your land is even before you plant your seeds.

4.  Seed and Feed

Finally, your last step is to actually seed your lawn. After seeding, preferably on the same day, you should then feed your lawn with food that is specially formulated to help new grass grow.

From there, lightly cover-up your area with soil and begin to watch your lawn thrive.
