Best Grass Seed Mat Roll

4 min read

Black Beauty® Ultra grass seed is consistently ranked as one of the best grass seeds available on the market today. For instant gratification, purchase our Black Beauty SeedRoll, a biodegradable seed mat that contains premium Black Beauty® Ultra grass seed, starter lawn fertilizer, and mulch.

Jonathan Green has worked for more than 100 years to bring beautiful dark-green lawns to homeowners using only the highest quality traditional and organic products. Since 1881, we have experimented with turfgrass varietals to breed our genetically superior turf grasses, such as those found in our Black Beauty® grass seed mixtures. 

We supply grass seed, organics, and weed, insect, and disease control products to homeowners and the independent retailer and professional lawn care markets from coast to coast. We rigorously test all products to ensure that they perform to the highest standards.

Reasons to Choose Black Beauty® Grass Seed Rolls

Planting a lawn from seed is a simple process, but sowing seed at the wrong time can lead to failed seed or weak grass, and the weather will influence how quickly it grows.

The advantages of using Black Beauty® Grass Seed Rolls include:

  • Fast establishment. When properly installed, germination will take two to three weeks for the grass to root well and become established.
  • Prevents seed loss.  Unlike traditional grass seed sowing, seeds are enclosed in the seed mat to prevent them from washing away, from planting them too deeply, and from hungry birds.
  • Use it all year. Black Beauty® Grass Seed Rolls can be installed anytime in the growing season that soil temperatures in your area are consistently above 55°F.
  • It’s biodegradable. Once rolled out and watered, the grass mat will stick to the ground, and the seeds will begin to germinate. Each seed is surrounded by fertilizer and secured by biodegradable fabric that promotes uniform growth.
  • Quick turnaround for foot traffic. Newly seeded lawns may take 10 to 12 weeks to grow before they can tolerate even light foot traffic. However, once Black Beauty® Grass Seed Rolls are established, your lawn will be ready for regular foot traffic from entertaining, play, and pets.

What to Avoid

  • The SeedRoll must touch the soil to grow. Do not lay it over existing grass or other vegetation.
  • Do not install SeedRoll during periods of strong winds or approaching heavy rains.
  • Do not pre-water the SeedRoll. The SeedRoll will “stick” to the ground once moistened, so try to keep the bottom edge of each new section dry.
  • Do not walk on the SeedRoll immediately after installation.
  • Water frequently with a sprinkler or hose after installation. Do not apply a forceful jet of water to the SeedRoll.

Rejuvenate weak areas of your lawn with the Black Beauty® Biodegradable Grass Seed Roll, and keep your yard green. Visit Jonathan Green online, or locate your nearest independent garden center or hardware store where you can find the best information about caring for your lawn and garden.
