What is the Best Grass Seed?

We strongly believe that Lesco is the best brand of seed. Professionals use this grass because of its high quality, weed-free results, and because Lesco has the the highest germination percentage rates in the industry. The best type of grass for you will depend on your climate.

When to Plant Grass Seed

Fall is best for planting cool-season grasses like Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrasses, and tall fescues. Daytime air temperatures should be averaging between 60 and 85 degrees which translates to soil temperatures between 50 to 75 degrees. Spring is the second best option for cool-season grasses. Warm-season grasses, like Bermudagrass, Bahiagrass, Centipede grass and Zoysia grass has the most successful germination rates in spring and early summer when daytime temperatures are averaging about 80 degrees.

How to Plant Grass Seed

Test to be sure your lawn pH is between 6.0 and 7.4. Prepare the seed bed and apply Lesco Starter Fertilizer 18-24-12. Broadcast your seed at the recommended rate. Keep it constantly moist by watering 2 to 3 times per day with a mist spray until germination. Learn more about How to Plant Grass Seed HERE

How to Water Grass Seed

Water newly spread seed by lightly spraying 2 to 3 times per day. The goal is to keep the soil moist, but not wet. Once your grass has germinated begin to water heavier, but less often.

When to Overseed?

Late summer into fall and spring are good times to overseed northern yards with cool-season grasses. Southern lawns should be overseeded in fall with a cool-season grass, like Double Eagle Select Perennial Ryegrass.
