Grass Seeding Tips and Tricks with PPLM
Grass Seeding Tip and Tricks
Grass Seeding is what PPLM is all about, and this blog is no exception! PPLM is officially starting aeration and grass seeding services this week, with starter fertilizer and lime being performed at the same time for most of our clients. Our mow crews have already begun mowing lawns a little lower with each service, and they’ll be off the lawn entirely for a few weeks after grass seeding is performed. In addition to how busy our crews are, our office staff is hard at work launching a new campaign to bring educational and engaging YouTube videos to our clients and followers. Be sure to subscribe to our channel to get the latest information on how you can maximize on your PPLM service! Check out the video below from one of our owning family members Brandyn to see him explain how PPLM strives to stand apart in our industry. Remember this is the time for Grass Seeding.
Grass Seeding is one of the most important services for your lawn care season, and the quality of work available in our area varies widely. Settling for a low quality service can have serious consequences for your lawn next season such as uneven growth, weak fescue, and excessive weeds. Aeration and grass seeding is an investment, so you want to take the extra step to make sure your investment has the best return possible. If you haven’t done so already, it’s not too late to get on our schedule for Grass Seeding in September. Either way, be sure to take a look at our video below that walks you through what’s covered in our standard aeration and seeding service and how we go the extra mile to maximize on your quality service.
A lot is involved with the Grass Seeding process, so it’s important that your lawn is completely ready to go prior to service. Our office contacts you one week as well as one day ahead of your schedule aeration and grass seeding to give you plenty of notice to prep the yard. This prep includes:
• Mowing lower: we recommend mowing to no taller than 3″ prior to aeration and grass seeding, which is lower than your usual height
• Flagging obstacles: any underground structures within 6 inches of the surface should be marked so we can avoid them with the aerator
• Watering properly: we want your yard to be watered well prior to service, but be sure not to run your sprinklers for at least 24 hours before we’re scheduled to get there
Be sure to watch our very helpful video below that walks you through the details of how to prep your yard for aeration and grass seeding!
Your yard is put through a lot with aeration and grass seeding. It’s by far the most aggressive service your lawn experiences each year, and on top of that, the baby seed you’re trying to grow is very delicate during the first stage of its life. As a result, proper aftercare is vital to fostering healthy development in your lawn. The day of your aeration and grass seeding, our team leaves with you a page of instructions on how you can best support your new lawn as it develops over the first 3-6 weeks from grass seeding. It’s always good to be prepared though, especially when it involves timing your irrigation system properly. We’ve provided a video below in which we break down the most important parts of seeding aftercare to help you get a jump start on your role in the aeration and grass seeding process.
