If you’re looking to boost your home’s curb appeal, updating your lawn is a great place to start. It’s one of the first things people notice, so it’s important to keep it in great condition. To revamp your green space, proper maintenance is essential. And that starts with seeding.
Know the types of grass
Before seeding, you have to figure out the type of turf that would grow best in your yard. Select a turf type suited to your region.
Believe it or not, grasses fall into two types of categories: cool season and warm season. Cool season grasses grow better in northern, temperate climates, while warm weather grasses are best suited in regions with warmer summer and winters. Do some homework before buying seeds – you want to make sure you get the right ones.
Build a checklist
Seeding doesn’t require much time, but to get the job done well, you need the right tools and materials. Here are some essentials that can be found at your local Home Depot:
Get to seeding
Feel prepared? Good. Because now comes the fun. Break the top layer and start with fertilizer. Using your mini skid steer, smooth and level the surface. Then, spread the seed evenly throughout the yard. Finish the job by raking the soil and leveling with your skid steer where you see fit.
Keep up with watering
This is often the most overlooked step, but probably the most important. Water early and often. You could even install a sprinkler system while you’re at it.
With the right equipment and materials, you will make your neighbors green with envy in no time.
