Depending where we are in the season grass will begin growing from the seeds in 2-3 weeks. You can expect a 50 - 90% germination with our seed.
Slit-seeding involves creating slits in the grass and depositing seed in to give them deeper contact with the soil. This process ensures better growth, protects the seed from the elements and animals; such as birds.
Any lawn will have a layer of thatch between the grass itself and the dirt below. Slit-seeding ensures the seed is deposited in the soil rather than on top of the thatch where it cannot germinate.
For our Great Dane and Saint Bernard packages we offer an additional complimentary bag of seed during the lawn care season. On the bag there are details about how to get the best results from seeding.
