How do I calculate how much grass seed I need?
Multiply the seeding rate, in pounds per 1,000 square feet, of the grass species or blend you are using by the total area, in square feet, to determine the total quantity of grass seed you will need. For example, if you want to plant 1 acre of corn, you would multiply the number of acres in your plot by 1.5 to get the amount of seed that would be needed to cover that acre.
Can you put too much grass seed down?
Too much grass seed causes undue competition for resources such as light, water and nutrients, and grass seedlings struggle as a result. In addition, too much seed makes it difficult for grass seeds to germinate, which can lead to the spread of disease and insect infestations.
Grass seed is also a major source of nitrogen, a nutrient that is essential for plant growth and development. Without sufficient nitrogen in the soil, plants will not be able to take advantage of the nutrients they need to grow and produce fruit and vegetables.
Do you need to put soil over grass seed?
Very little soil is actually needed to cover the seeds, typically about ¼- inch, so simple raking will do the trick. If the seeds are not properly protected by existing grass or a thin layer of topsoil, they may dry before they grow.
Seedlings should be transplanted into a well-drained potting mix and allowed to grow for a few weeks before transplanting to a larger pot. This will give the seedlings a chance to establish a root system before they need to be moved to the larger container. Once established, transplants can be kept in the same pot for several years.
Can I just throw grass seed on my lawn?
While it’s possible to simply sow the new grass seed over your existing lawn, taking the time to prepare your lawn prior to transplant will increase the likelihood of a successful transplant.
How much area does a 7 lb bag of grass seed cover?
Over seeding an existing lawn usually takes twice as much as seeding a new lawn. Seed bags can be purchased at most garden centers, garden supply stores, or online.
