Lawn Seeding 101: Not all Grass Seed is Created Equal

Planting new varieties can help protect a lawn from drought, disease, pests, excessive traffic and shade, so as a result they need less water and pest control. The Turf Guy only uses the best rated varieties. Based on these reviews, we've created our own premium grass seed blends which mostly include Kentucky Bluegrass, Perennial Ryegrass and Tall Fescues.

Using Slice Seeding for Your Lawn Seeding

Lawn services, accurately timed and performed by professionals will be conducted with the use of specialized equipment designed to maximize performance. The slice seeding equipment used on your lawn slices through the thatch and plants new grass seed directly into the soil, eliminating the need to till or strip.

Our lawn care professionals will assess your landscape and determine the specific needs of your lawn. You can be sure that the premium seed blend selected for your lawn will give you the best results for growing grass on your property.

Slice seeding with a machine is the best way to over-seed an existing lawn. The machine actually cuts slices into the grass and soil with metal discs. Grass seed is delivered directly into the slices by means of feeder tubes mounted adjacent to the slicing discs. This ensures soil to seed contact which is essential for adequate germination.

The best results occur when core aeration is performed first. The soil must be moist for good penetration of the coring tines. Follow this procedure with the slice seeding machine. Two passes of the machine should be made, the second pass should be made at a right angle to the first. To ensure good germination, regular watering or rainfall is needed. Also, avoid seeding late in September or October. There usually is not enough time for the newly sprouted grasses to harden off before cold weather arrives.

Follow it up with a late fall fertilizer application. If the timing is right and the weather cooperates you will have a dynamic new lawn in the spring.

Slit Seeding Services

A slit seeder is a handy lawn machine that opens small grooves, or slits, in the ground that receive grass seeds.
