We recommend beginning your spring grass seeding with our Premium Grass Seed, Shade Mix, and/or All-Purpose mixtures. Here’s what to know about spreading grass seed.

Don’t Start Seeding Too Soon

Spring is a great time to plant grass seed in Ohio! But, before you get too excited and start spreading your seeds, make sure that the ground has thawed enough.

Planting seeds in frozen soil won’t give them a good chance at growing – so wait until the temperature rises and the earth is warm enough to take new life. Click here to learn how to tell if your ground has thawed enough for seeding or planting.

Tips for Spring Grass Seeding

Once the temperature rises and the earth is warm, then it’s time for seeding. Here are some tips on getting the most out of your spring grass seeding:

  1. Prepare the area where you’ll be seeding by tilling or aerating. This will help the seeds take hold in the ground.
  2. Use a fertilizer spreader to ensure even coverage when you spread the grass seed.
  3. Gently rake the area after applying seed to help it settle into the soil.
  4. Lastly, keep an eye on your newly-planted grass and water regularly until it takes root. Make sure to keep your newly-planted grass moist – not soaked – for two to four weeks, and don’t let it dry out.

With just these few simple steps, you’ll be able to enjoy lush green grass all summer long!
