Grandpa’s Grass Seeds: The Old-Fashioned Secret to a Great Lawn
One of our most popular products is Grandpa’s Grass Seeds, which uses a blend of different seed types to grow a lush lawn you’ll be proud to show off. Mixing seed types means that some will germinate quickly while others develop later to fill in gaps or thin spots. This teamwork is the secret to establishing a resilient lawn, plus it will require less water than other seed products. One of our 4-pound units will cover up to 300 square feet.
Choose Argentine Bahiagrass for a Low Maintenance Lawn
Argentine Bahiagrass seeds are part of Grandpa’s mix, but they are also a great choice on their own. This type of grass thrives well across Southern lawns and pastures. Many homeowners favor it for its larger leaves and darker color. Perhaps most importantly, it’s low maintenance.
Argentine Bahiagrass is drought, insect, and disease tolerant and works well in full sun and warm weather. It turns brown after a light frost but comes back quickly when warm weather returns.
Plant 5 to 10 pounds of Argentine Bahiagrass seeds per thousand square feet for lawns. For pastures, you’ll need to plant 25 to 50 pounds per acre.
Go Bermuda for Golf Courses, Sports Fields, and More
Thanks to its deep roots, short leaves, and low-growing nature, Bermuda grass boasts good drought and heat tolerance. Plus, it establishes quickly with adequate moisture. These reasons and more are why Bermuda grass seeds are so popular for lawns, roadsides, and pastures throughout the Southeast. We also offer an improved version for golf courses and sports fields; talk to our team to learn more.
