From pulling off a total lawn reset to giving some attention to overlooked spaced in your landscape, grass seeding is an option that most people can pull off on their own. Compared to installing sod, seeding is a breeze. In this post, we are going to take you step-by-step through a simple grass seeding project.
You'll want to start by clearing out any existing vegetation from the desired area. Sometimes, brown patches in your lawn will still harbor ground cover plants in the soil. A non-selective weed killer will do a good job at killing any weeds that are present, but it will also kill any grass present, as well. So, exercise caution when applying herbicide. It's best to don protective clothing and apply the herbicide only to the selected area. Some brands of weed killer can take longer than others to kill the vegetation, but two weeks should be plenty of time for just about any weed killer to do the job.
When you have the area clear and ready, follow these steps.
There are a number of factors that can influence the overall health of your lawn, including new seed. Some of these factors include exposure to direct sunlight and foot traffic. In such cases, you'll want to give extra attention to those areas to keep that grass lush and healthy.
Keeping your lawn looking great year after year takes work. Now and again, you may have to re-seed certain areas. With the steps listed above, though, you should be well on your way.
