Planting Instructions


New Seeding

We recommend conducting a soil test to be sure your soil has the proper pH and nutrients it needs for a healthy lawn.

Before seeding a new lawn, rid your lawn of undesirable grasses and/or weeds following the steps below:

During any growing season, spray the established undesirable turf with a nonselective herbicide such as Hi-Yield Killzall. Follow the directions on the label.

After the grass and weeds have turned brown, continue with your seeding program as outlined below.


Step 1
If you are unable to conduct a soil test, apply a lawn starter fertilizer and a fast-acting lime to soil surface according to the recommended rates on the product packages. 

Step 2
Prepare the soil by tilling to a depth of 4-6 inches and then rake to smooth. 

Step 3
Sow the Bermudagrass seed by evenly spreading it with a rotary-type at a rate of 2 pounds per 1,000 square feet for a new lawn. Rake, harrow or otherwise work the seed into the soil ?" deep, no deeper. A leaf rake lightly dragged over the soil surface works well to lightly cover seed. 

Step 4
Fertilize and lime if needed. If you are unable to conduct a soil test, apply a lawn starter fertilizer and a fast-acting lime to soil surface according to the recommended rates on the product packages.

Step 5
To help prevent washing of seed and to help hold moisture in the soil, spread a thin layer of wheat straw or hay over the seeded area, just enough to cover the soil surface.

Step 6
Water your newly seeded lawn. To avoid washing seed away, avoid watering to a point where water begins to run off.  Thereafter, keep the area watered enough to keep the seedbed damp until the seeds germinate and the seedlings have grown sufficiently to establish a lawn, then water as needed.



Overseeding or Reseeding

We recommend conducting a soil test to be sure your soil has the proper pH and nutrients it needs for a healthy lawn.


Step 1
Mow or clip the existing grass as closely as possible. if you did not use a grass catcher, rake to remove clippings.

Step 2
Before overseeding, it is important to prepare the soil so that the new seed will make good contact with the soil. To avoid destroying the existing grass, you'll want to use a spike or core aerator to poke holes in the soil surface that are no more than 1/4" deep. Make several passes over the lawn so as to disturb as much of the soil surface as possible. Bermuda seed buried any deeper may not germinate (sprout). 

Step 3
When overseeding an existing lawn, sow the Bermudagrass grass seed by evenly spreading it with a rotary-type spreader at a rate of 1 pound per 1,000 square feet. Drag a leaf rake lightly over the soil surface to lightly blend the seed with the disturbed soil. 

Step 4
Fertilize and lime if needed. If you are unable to conduct a soil test, apply a lawn starter fertilizer and a fast-acting lime to soil surface according to the recommended rates on the product packages. 

Step 5
Water your newly seeded lawn. To avoid washing seed away, avoid watering to a point where water begins to run off.  Thereafter, keep the area watered enough to keep the seedbed damp until the seeds germinate and the seedlings have grown sufficiently to establish a lawn, then water as needed.
