Our Seed Blend

Our custom blend of grass seed is tailored for Maryland’s climate and recommended by the University of Maryland’s Agriculture Department. It primarily consists of hand selected tall fescue varieties chosen for their heat tolerance, drought resistance, disease resistance, color, root growth, and unique self repair properties. A small amount of rye grass is added for quick germination and Kentucky Bluegrass for its spreading capabilities, to create a lush and healthy lawn.

Bare spots in a lawn can be caused by a variety of factors, including heavy foot traffic, disease, pests, or lack of maintenance. The first step in repairing bare spots is to identify the cause of the problem. If the bare spot is caused by disease or pests, it is important to address the underlying issue before proceeding with repairs. Once the cause has been identified, it is important to remove any dead or damaged grass and loosen the soil in the bare spot. Next we’ll fertilize the area with our organic slow-release fertilizers to provide the necessary nutrients for healthy grass growth. After fertilizing, we’ll sow our blend of grass seed directly into the bare spots and watch it grow.

Seasonal overseeding is the practice of adding new grass seed to an existing lawn during the cool seasons, typically fall. The new seed will germinate and grow along with the existing grasses, creating a thicker, denser lawn that is less prone to weed invasion and bare spots. Overseeding also serves to revitalize a lawn that may have become thin or patchy over time, and it can also help to improve the overall health and appearance of the lawn. It is important to note that proper lawn preparation, timing, and seed selection are crucial for a successful overseeding process.

For optimal results, it’s recommended to pair overseeding of your lawn with aeration. If you’re interested in learning more about aeration, you can find more information here.

Seeding a new lawn is a great way to give your yard a fresh start and create a lush, green space for your family to enjoy. The first step in seeding a new lawn is to prepare the soil. This means removing any debris, such as rocks and sticks, and tilling or loosening the soil to ensure good seed-to-soil contact. Once the soil is ready, we’ll spread our specialty seed blend evenly across your lawn at a healthy rate of 8 pounds per 1,000 square feet, cover it if needed depending on circumstances, and watch it grow.

Sod installation is an efficient way to establish a new lawn quickly. The process involves laying down pre-grown grass, known as sod, onto a prepared area of soil for an immediate, lush lawn. The first step is to prepare the soil by removing debris and tilling or loosening the soil to ensure good soil-to-sod contact. The sod is then carefully laid out on the prepared soil, making sure to eliminate any gaps or overlaps. After installation, consistent watering and maintenance is necessary to aid root establishment and promote healthy growth. Sod installation is a great choice for those who want a lawn right away.
