Advanced Seeding Techniques For Your New Jersey Lawn
If you aren't sure what you're doing, growing grass from seed can be quite an arduous process. There's nothing worse than spending an entire Saturday working to spread seed throughout your patchy, unhealthy lawn only to see it do nothing. There are so many factors - quality of the soil, depth of the thatch, proper seed dispersion, time of year - that can contribute to it going poorly.
Why spends that time and stress yourself when you can have experts take care of it for you? All Wet Irrigation & Lighting employs power seeding and overseeding techniques to ensure adequate coverage so you get a bold, verdant lawn to enjoy.
The best time to start fertilizing your lawn is in the early spring, when the soil temperature reaches 50 degrees Fahrenheit. You will want to continue fertilizing every 4 to 6 weeks after your first application.
Generally, you’ll want to plant cool-season grass seed at least 45 days before the estimated date of your first fall frost, before soil and air temperatures drop to less favorable levels. Your grasses will enjoy a full fall season, plus a second cool, growing season come spring.
Typically, every 4 to 6 weeks. The key is to fertilize during the spring, summer, and fall seasons when your grass is growing the most.
Grass does not grow well under trees due to the shade. Grass also competes with trees for moisture and nutrients. Therefore, the soil becomes drier and less fertile. Rain shielded from the tree's canopy can also limit the amount of moisture in the soil.
What Kind Of Blend Does All Wet Irrigation & Lighting Use?
Our soil in New Jersey has its own quirks and needs, so we've developed a special blend of grasses that are uniquely suited to flourish here. Our signature blend includes:
- Kentucky Bluegrass
- Fine Fescue
- Perennial Ryegrass
- Tall Fescue
Each of these grasses is able to grow into a healthy, durable lawn with a gorgeous green color that will turn your yard into an absolute work of art.
What Process Does All Wet Irrigation & Lighting Use To Plant Grass Seed?
The first step in our seeding protocol is to make sure your lawn is properly aerated. Then, depending on your yard and its current condition, there are one of two techniques we might bring into service to plant your new grass seed - Power Seeding and Overseeding.
- Power Seeding - Power seeding uses a special machine that creates small slices in your soil and places the grass seeds deep into them. This helps to develop a strong root system that results in a healthy crop of grass. It doesn't damage your lawn and will prevent uneven growth.
- Overseeding - After aeration, your yard will have hundreds of small holes where the process removed dirt plugs to loosen up your lawn. Overseeding plants the grass seed directly into the existing turf, meaning each of these holes will be seeded, giving the grass a good start for healthy germination and growth.
