The Best Grass Seed

If you want the best-looking lawn, be sure to choose the highest quality grass seed. We highly recommend either the Jonathan Green Black Beauty® Original Grass Seed or Black Beauty® Ultra Grass Seed:

  • Black Beauty® Original Grass Seed – This Jonathan Green grass seed blend is grown by sod growers across the USA. It grows roots up to 4′ deep and produces a naturally darker-green turf with better disease resistance and drought tolerance. A waxy leaf coating helps preserve moisture and wards off stress from heat, cold, wind and disease. This blend grows well in clay or sandy soils and in full sun or partial shade.
  • Black Beauty® Ultra Grass Seed is most similar to what is found on sod farms. The mixture contains exclusive, elite varieties of tall fescue, Kentucky bluegrass and perennial ryegrass.  These cool season grasses grow a naturally dark-green and beautiful lawn with excellent heat and drought tolerance.  Black Beauty® Ultra Grass Seed germinates in about 14 days and will improve any lawn it is overseeded into.

The Best Way to Prepare Your Soil

Before you lay any seed down, the soil must be at the right pH and must be loosened to allow for proper root growth.

MAG-I-CAL® is specially formulated to quickly raise or lower your soil to the ideal pH range of between 6.2 and 7.0. For pH that falls below 6.2, use Mag-I-Cal® Plus for Lawns in Acidic & Hard Soil. For pH that is above 7, use Mag-I-Cal® Plus for Lawns in Alkaline & Hard Soil. (You can purchase a pH tester from us or any local hardware or garden supply store.) MAG-I-CAL® can be applied the same day as the grass seed is spread.

Once you’ve corrected the soil pH, loosen and aerate it for best root growth. This can be done with Love Your Soil®. This innovative soil treatment activates the microbes within the soil. Once activated, the microbes allow for nutrients to be easily absorbed by the grass roots, resulting in stronger, heartier grass. Both of these products can be applied right before laying down new seed.
