Once the lawn is seeded, you’ll do best to follow a few important seeded lawn care tips. The first is to mulch the seeded lawn lightly with straw. Cover about 75% of the ground. A light layer of straw holds in moisture and prevents the seeds from blowing away.
Irrigation is also very important. Keep the soil damp at all times, but never provide sufficient water to wash away the grass seeds. Different types of grass seeds require different amounts of irrigation.
For example, a seeded Bermuda grass lawn must be lightly watered three or four times a day. On the other hand, perennial rye seeds need water twice a day. It may be necessary to water with the hose until the seeds germinate. Again, the golden rule here is that if you are at all unsure, just call Greenfield.
