Happy Birthday, dear son!!!
The weather has warmed up and rain seems to fall every third day or so.
That makes it the perfect time for me to ask Charlie to throw a little grass seed in the yard.
The last major seeding was done back in the fall of 2013. The last time we used “heat-tolerant Blue Mix” since it was in the open area of the yard.
He dethatched the yard near the back of the house.
We had a little seed (dense shade mix) left over from other projects which he used to over-seed the lawn between the house and the potager.
I received a text that said he needs about 10 pounds more of grass seed. The Scott’s Turf Builder we use comes in 3, 7, and 20 pound bags so I opted for the 7 pounder. I’m purchasing Scott’s Sun and Shade mix this time since we have a combination of areas around the house.
I’m hoping this grass will at least be spouted by the first weekend in May so we can have an indoor/outdoor bridal shower.
Do you prefer spring or fall to seed the lawn? Or have you replaced the your lawn with other plants?
I have not been perked or paid to use Scott’s grass seed. It was recommended to me by the farm manager at work who does a lot more seeding than we do.
