Seeds for All Conditions
Using a blend of seed types is a good step toward growing a lawn of which you can be proud. One seed will germinate quickly while others come along later and can fill in gaps or thin spots; mixing types provides teamwork for your lawn. Grandpa’s Grass Seeds mix fits that bill nicely. It provides fast germination and greening and establishes a healthy and strong lawn that requires much less water than other seeds. It’s easy to seed and comes in four-pound units that cover up to 300 square feet.
Argentine Bahiagrass seeds are components in Grandpa’s mix, but they are also ideal for use in their own right. This type of seed is applied to properties across the Southern US, where it works well as a lawn and pasture seed. Because it has larger leaves and a darker color than other bahiagrasses, many homeowners favor the Argentine Bahiagrass seeds. This grass is drought, insect, and disease tolerant and works well in full sun and warm weather. It turns brown in light frost but comes back quickly with the return of warm weather.
Seeding Rates for Argentine Bahiagrass seeds: Plant 5 - 10 pounds per thousand square feet for lawns. Plant 25-50 pounds per acre.
