Our Low-growing Grass Mix is a great mixture of lower maintenance cool season grasses that establish well in cooler climates and higher altitudes (up to 8,000 ft). The lower growth habit of the
grasses means infrequent or no mowing. Well-suited for erosion control and transition turf areas.
This mix has a multi-year shelf life when stored in a Cool and Dry environment. Additional seed mix purchased this year can be used for years when stored properly.
SEEDING RATE: Drill Rate 20-25 lbs. per acre, Broadcast Rate 30-35 lb.s per acre
Small Areas 1-2 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft.
General Grass Seeding Tips:
Timing: Seed in the Spring or Fall when the soil temperature is 60 to 70 degrees
Preparation: Ensure adequate drainage of your site. Cultivate 4-6 inches with topsoil. Incorporation of a starter fertilizer will help provide proper nutrients for early growth. Keep seed bed firm, not fluffy.
Seeding: Using a drop spreader or a broadcast spreader, spread half the seed lengthwise over your site, and then the other half crosswise over your site. A recommended seeding rate is listed on the seed tag.
Moisture: To help promote good seed germination, keep the newly seeded area moist.
Maintenance: Do not mow to less than 3 inches in height. Overseed bare spots to minimize weed growth. Spring or Fall are excellent times for overseeding.
