North Star Grass Seed

North Star Grass Seed provides excellent product to produce the greenest lawn possible! Our North Star Grass seed is a mix of grass seeds designed to give you a lush lawn. It comes in an 11lb bag and will cover approximately 2000sqft. It is a blend of 70% Kentucky Bluegrass, 20% Creeping Red Fescue, and 10% Perennial Ryegrass. 

The best time of year to spread grass seed is in the early spring and late fall. You want the ground to have lots of moisture. You can spread grass seed in the summer as well, but it is crucial to ensure that there is a regular watering schedule for the grass seed to be successful. To install, apply the seed at a rate of 4-6lbs per 1000sqft. Divide the grass seed in half, then scatter half the seeds while walking back and forth across the length of your yard. Scatter the remainder of the seed while walking back and forth across the width of your yard. Lightly rake the surface of the soil to barely cover the seed. Use a weighted roller over the soil surface to ensure good contact between the seeds and soil. Apply water gently to avoid washing the seed away or making puddles in the soil. It is important to keep the soil moist! If the soil dries out, you may delay germination of the seed. If you are applying grass seed in the fall, the seed will lay dormant until the following spring when conditions improve again. Germination is usually anywhere between 7-21 days.

Mowing should be done when the grass is 3-4 inches in height and the blades of the mower should be set as high as possible. Cutting the grass too short puts a lot of stress on the roots and will quickly kill off the grass. Make sure to only cut when it is dry. Clippings should be left on the lawn to add nutrients to the soil and improve the root system of the grass.
