There are several forms of seed to soil contact. Your lawn may have received a spot seeding, spike seeding, core aeration, thatching, or a deep fraction. All serve a different purpose depending on the type of damage, soil profile, and history of turf. The one most questioned service is when we used the scratch manthis. This machine incorporates the seed into the dead area of your lawn and leaves a layer of grass that acts as a seed bed of germination. Mowing service can go over these areas without picking up the seed that is incorporated into the soil below. Even though this is temporarily unsightly, it produces good results.
Questions Usually Asked After Seeding
Q: How can I help?
A: Water daily, keeping seed’s beds moist for 4-6 weeks or longer and keep unnecessary traffic off seeded areas.
Q: Can my lawn be cut?
A: Yes, with millions of seeds per pound, the lawn mower cannot displace enough seed to affect the outcome.
Q: What if I do not seed many seeds?
A: The seeds that are mixed in the soil or dropped into holes are the ones we don’t see, as well as the ones that produce the best results.
Q: What if I don’t see the seeds germinating?
A: Seed germination is dependent upon water, heat, light, and variety of seed. Most seeds won’t be noticed for 20-45 days, unless you are incredibly close to their location.
Q: Will birds eat my seeds?
A: If you see birds, don’t panic. While they will eat your seeds, at one to two million seeds per round, they will not eat enough to affect the outcome.
