Ever Seed a Lawn?

Postby The Balanced Man » Thu Apr 27, 2006 5:49 pm

If you have, how long does it take to start growing.

I removed my lawn and seeded, and now I'm waiting.

I've found the following online...

DAYS
Bahia Grass 21-28
Bermudagrass 14-20
Centipede Grass 14-20
Ky Bluegrass 20-30
Tall Fescue 5-12

Just wondering what anyone's experience was.

Really all depends on weather, how much you water, your soil, and the type of seed you used. I used to landscape back in high school and all the way until the year i finished college. I have seen lawns take seed in 10 days. Did you use anything to cover the seed? i.e. hay? The birds will have a field day with that seed if you dont cover it with something.

Yea, Green pelets with fertilizer which expand and hold in water throughout the day, and later on biodegrade.

Supposed to be the best for the lawn according to the garden center because it protects like hay, fertilizes, and holds in water for the lawn during the day. Not that I really know. :-?

Those are actually really good, saves from having to fertilize a lawn. Which many people over fertilize and kill and saves the clean up of hay. You should be seeing a nice start in about 10 days, again depending on the weather.

the thing is, we would have fertilized it anyway, and had to pay for that. Plus hay has lots of weed seeds.

yeah, like MSB said, alot depends on temp, soil coverage and how much you watered

i reseeded some bare spots with Rye Grass seeds and Scott's Lawn Soil and mixed the seeds in good with the soil (didnt just leave them on top) and i had sprouts in exactly 7 days
