Reseed Your Grass In The Fall & Get Ready For Spring!
If you’re a landscape lover like us, you want your grass, your garden, and all your greenery looking its very greenest! We know it can’t always be possible, especially as we catch the heat of summer and start heading into fall. Right now, you might be noticing some patches in your lawn that look not so lawn-like. You’re itching to reseed your lawn’s problem areas so it’ll be in tip-top shape by spring next year.
While summer is much too early for reseeding because of the harsh heat and super-shiny sun, waiting too long isn’t the key to great reseeding either. So we’re going to let you in on our little secret for lush, thriving grass come springtime: Reseed in the fall!
URGENT NEWS! Reseed Your Lawn This Fall
Dramatic? Maybe, but essential as for timing? Absolutely!
The very best time to reseed your lawn is the time right after the end of summer but before mid-October. Winter likes to jump onto the scene with a combo of cold weather, short days, and a general beating-and-a-half for our lawns. But with a little preparation NOW, you can reestablish your lawn before the cold kicks in. This is sure to ensure your turf stays strong and resilient through winter, and then comes back lush, lavish, and healthy in the spring!
Steps to Reseed Your Turf
Follow these simple steps to accomplish your very own Full Circle Fall Turf Reseed. And check out that photographic evidence … of reseed results in just 14 days!
Step 1 – Rake It Up
Use a heavy rake (metal) and rake up the native soil of the bare spots or areas where your turf needs more growth. Loosening up that old, native soil helps create a shallow seed bed for new seeds and lush new growth.
Step 2 – Spread It Out
Spread about 5lbs of drought-tolerant turf grass seed for every 1,000 square feet over the area that need more growth. Make sure you’re thoroughly covering all those bare spots so each area will grow great green grass!
Step 3 – BOOST!
The most popular product we have here at Full Circle Compost is our BOOST Soil Amendment. It sure is popular among our fellow northern Nevada gardeners and growers for good reason, and here’s why.
BOOST is our premium humus based compost with a 100lb (20 ingredient) mineral and nutrient package specific to Nevada soils. It’s so easy, all you have to do is spread BOOST, rake it out, water it in. You can use BOOST on landscapes, lawns, flowers, trees, shrubs, and gardens.
BOOST is packed full of good-for-your-plants ingredients like: Base Compost, Agricultural Gypsum, Agricultural Limestone, Solution Gypsum, Solution Limestone, Soft Rock Phosphate, Magnesium Sulfate, Manganese Sulfate, Molasses, Rock Powder Mineral Program, Humate, Mycorrhizae, Liquid Fish, Sulfur, Vermicompost, Compost Tea Brew, Kelp, Feather Meal, Iron Sulfate, and Yucca Powder.
But enough with the science terms, let’s get to BOOSTing your reseed! Just spread 1/4 inch application of BOOST over the top of your freshly laid seeds–it’s that easy!
Step 4 – Give It Some Water
To establish good, deep root penetration for future drought control, you should water newly seeded areas twice a day for 7 days at 20 mins a time to keep the new seed wet. This also allows all those great nutrients in BOOST to soak into your freshly planted seeds and soil. For the next 7 days, water twice a day at 10 mins a time.
By the end of those first two weeks, your lawn should already be looking pretty sweet. Go ahead and water once a day for 15 mins for 5 more days. Then cut back to normal watering right up until everyone shuts off their watering systems for the winter!
Your lawn should already be nicely reestablished with a healthy thickness, just in time for that cold to set in. And voila–look at you and your lawn already all ready for winter!
Step 5 – Spring BOOST
Now that we’ve made it through winter (Phew!) it’s time to BOOST some more! When weather begins to warm up for spring, add just one more application of BOOST and …
Step 6 – BOOM!
That’s it! You did it! Now go enjoy your uber-lush, super-lavish, totally healthy lawn!
SPOILER ALERT: Your lawn’s metamorphosis is going to look like this!
