Best Grass Seed for Pennsylvania

4 min read

There is nothing more important you can do for your lawn in Pennsylvania than to select the best grass seed and soil-enhancing products that will help you achieve a lawn that looks beautiful and is easier to maintain.

The Jonathan Green name has represented high-quality cool season grass seed, innovation, integrity, determination, and a commitment to excellence since 1881. Today, six generations later, we remain committed to producing superior lawn and garden products.

We supply grass seed, soil enhancers, fertilizer, and organic lawn and garden products to professional customers, such as sod growers and independent retailers, from coast to coast throughout the United States.

Buy the Best Grass Seed You Can Find

When purchasing grass seed, remember that “you get what you pay for.” Here are a few superb choices from Jonathan Green.

Black Beauty® Original Grass Seed – This original Jonathan Green grass seed blend is grown by sod growers across the USA. It grows roots up to 4-feet deep and produces a naturally darker-green turf with improved disease resistance and drought tolerance thanks to a waxy leaf coating that 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, with seed germination in 10 to 20 days.

Black Beauty® Ultra Grass Seed contains a mixture of exclusive varieties of Tall Fescue, Kentucky Bluegrass and Perennial Ryegrass and is also grown on sod farms.  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 10-14 days and will improve any lawn it is seeded into.

A Black Beauty® lawn will redefine your idea of what a good lawn is supposed to look like. We encourage you to read more about Jonathan Green’s revolutionary New American Lawn Plan, which will help you care for your lawn and encourage it to thrive.

Improve the Soil

Whether you are overseeding or seeding a completely new lawn, the seed must make good contact with the soil or it won’t germinate properly.

If your soil is very hard or compacted, Love Your Soil®  will loosen and aerate it. It will also feed the soil microbes, making the lawn soil more alive and porous, and enhancing root development. The new grass roots will grow much deeper when you spread Love Your Soil®. It can be applied the same day as the grass seed and works best when the soil temperature is 55 degrees Fahrenheit or warmer.

Now it’s time to test the soil pH with a pH tester from the Jonathan Green online store or your local home and garden store. The pH should fall within the range of 6.2 to 7.0. You can either raise the soil pH with Mag-I-Cal® Plus for Lawns in Acidic & Hard Soil or lower it with Mag-I-Cal® Plus for Lawns in Alkaline & Hard Soil.

Our MAG-I-CAL® Soil Foods will help you rapidly balance the soil’s pH and, at the same time, help the lawn grow greener and healthier. It can be used immediately before seeding, but keep checking the pH of your soil monthly because more than one application may be required to reach the ideal pH.
