Colorado Springs Seeding Services

What's Included In A Seeding Service?

Seeding is the process of planting grass seed directly into existing turf.

  • Seeding is beneficial to fill in bare patches in the lawn. If there are large dead areas it may be necessary to add topsoil.
  • Due to our arid conditions in Colorado Springs, seeding is often necessary to repair areas of lawn that were damaged over the winter. Seeding works best when done with aeration.
  • We offer an aeration/overseed/topdressing package based off the size of your lawn. We also offer aeration and seeding separatel

Seeding Program Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take for the seeds to germinate?

It can take 3 weeks for the seeds to root into the soil and germinate. It is crucial to continue watering your lawn during this time to prevent the seeds from drying out and dying.

Grass seed germinates best when daytime air temperatures are 60-75 degrees (F) leaving the soil temperatures at 50-65 degrees (F).

Should i seed my lawn or completely replace it?

The answer to the quick will vary due to different site factors, such as irrigation, the state of the current turf, and other factors.

New sod or seed always needs to be watered 2-3 times daily for the first 3-4 weeks.

The main goal is to keep everything moist and not let the lawn and the seeds dry out; 3-4 weeks of recommended watering will allow proper germination of the seed.

Watering always depends on the amount of sun, wind & shade that the area receives, so please adjust times accordingly.

Do I need to keep kids and pets off of new seed?

Do your best to minimize any traffic until after the new seed has become established. This can take 3-4 weeks.
