Whether it is new construction or revamping an existing lawn, we offer lawn installs for your yard. The first step of a lawn install is a rough grade, followed by about 4 inches of fine grading for the grass turf root to grow through. During establishment, a blend 50/50 or 60/40 blend is used. A blend is used for two reasons 1) there may be varying sunlight levels in a particular yard and fescue grass seed does better in part shade 2) Kentucky bluegrass takes longer to germinate - by having a blend, you have earlier coverage. After sowing the seeds, we put down straw, straw matting, or penn mulch, depending on the location. We then follow up with a weed preventer/fertilizer if desired. The most important step of a lawn install is diligently following the watering schedule. The main goal achieved through watering is germinating the seeds and then developing a solid root structure.
