First Time Laying Grass Seed

Posted by jcris25 none (My Page) on

I am looking to plant some grass seed for the first time. I need a seed that is good looking yet durable and will allow for moderate to heavy walking. My question is, if I plant a seed on my lawn will it over take my exhisting grass and flourish or will I have a mixture of to which I don't want. My yard is spotty with grass and my climate is basic. Slightly mild winters and hot summers. Thank you.

No one can offer a suitable suggestion unless you tell us your general location.

As to the sowing of seed into a different variety of grass....that's never a good idea. We need to know where you reside, what your permanent grass is.

It sounds like you might live in a climate where "warm season " grasses are the norm....in which case, seed won't be much help.

I have never had a grass take over another grass it just gets patchy unless of course you want to plant st augastine which really sucks due to being a weed itself and weeds love it.

u just need to go to the local walmart - they will be selling the correct type of seed for your area, and the bag will have instructions on it - that's what i would do
