Choosing the Right Grass Mixture for Lawn Seeding

Selecting the right mixture of grass seed makes all the difference when it comes to maintaining your lawn’s color, appearance and long-term health. Our lawn seeding experts will be able to help you navigate through various grass seed mixtures and seeding choices. Our expert knowledge of grass species, local growing conditions, and lawn maintenance needs will help us choose a grass seed mixture that’s right for your property.

What is Power Seeding?

The name says it all. Power seeding is about using precise state of the art equipment to literally sow seeds directly into the soil on your lawn without damaging your existing grass.  Getting grass seeds to grow comes down to one important component – seed to soil contact. . Lawn Doctor’s Turf Tamer Power Seeder combines the new seed with your lawn’s soil for the best possible results.  Simply throwing seeds on top of bare spots doesn’t cut it.  You end up with a very low germination rate typically around 10%. In other words, just one in every ten seeds will grow. But with our power seeding process and equipment your germination rate will be over 90%.

Power Seeding Thin, Bare and Damaged Lawns

One of the strengths of power seeding is how efficient it is in getting results. Power seeding is best used when the overall condition of your lawn is looking thin, bare and overstressed. Power Seeding may also be the best option in cases where weeds are rampant or animals and insects have damaged your lawn.

Power Seeding can quickly restore a thin damaged lawn to the thick, lush and healthy lawn you want and with the precise method being used, less grass seed is needed.  As always, our lawn experts can help you decide what will be the best method for revitalizing your grass, and with our state-of-the-art, Turf Tamer Power Seeder, we can get your lawn looking better and healthier very quickly.

Turf Tamer Power Seeding for Your Lawn

When it comes to Power Seeding, the right equipment makes all the difference. We have our own proprietary line of equipment, that we manufacture ourselves in the United States that is unmatched in the industry in delivery and results.

  • Non-Damaging Application. Turf Tamer has been designed to minimize damage to your lawn’s existing turf when applying seed.

Combining Lawn Seeding & Aeration

lawn aeration

Seeding is a useful technique for getting a healthy lawn. Aeration is an essential part of lawn health as well. Combine the two and you’ll get a duo that works together to produce a lawn that will be the envy of the neighborhood.

When soil becomes compacted, the lawn struggles to take in oxygen, water, and critical nutrients needed to grow properly. A well-aerated lawn, on the other hand, gives fresh seeds a better chance to absorb nutrients and develop stronger roots. In the same way that farmer plows and turns over a field every year, your lawn needs to have the soil conditions enhanced through aeration. Speak with us about how much your lawn could benefit from combining lawn seeding with lawn aeration services. Lawn Doctor Franchises offer core aeration, which – when coupled with seeding – can multiply the effectiveness of lawn maintenance and let your grass grow thicker and greener than ever. If you’re wondering if your lawn should be aerated, all you need to do is perform the screwdriver test. If you find it difficult to stick a screwdriver into your lawn soil, chances are the soil has become compacted and aeration is needed.

What is Overseeding?

Overseeding is another method to reseed a lawn, where grass seed is simply broadcast over the top of your existing lawn.  Unlike with Lawn Doctor’s Power Seeding service there is very little seed to soil contact.  Overseeding typically results in low germination of the new grass seed and will not produce the same thick lush lawn that Power Seeding can provide.

Getting the Timing Right

Timing is everything when it comes to lawn care. Generally speaking, late summer to early fall is the time period where you’ll want to think the most about planting new grass seeds in your yard. Every type of lawn is different, though, and there are times when planting in early spring can bring big benefits. The timing will also depend on your region and weather conditions you’ve had in your area over the previous months. We can give you expert advice on when would be the best time for you to reseed your yard.
