Answers to Your Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Grass Seed

Q. Are there different types of grass seeds?

A. Yes. There are different types of grasses that thrive in different regions, climates, and soil types.

  • Cool-season grasses include Perennial Ryegrass, Kentucky Bluegrass, Tall Fescues and Fine Fescues, and they dominate the cooler northern regions of the country, thriving in air temperatures of 65-80°F and growing rapidly in the spring and fall. They are drought-tolerant and very hardy.
  • Warm-season grasses include Bahia, Bermuda, Centipede, St. Augustine, and Zoysia, and grow most actively in the warmer southern areas of the country, preferring air temperatures in the 75-90°F range. These grasses achieve their peak growth in summer and will become dormant and turn brown during the cooler seasons.

If you live in the cooler northern regions of the USA, we highly recommend Black Beauty® Ultra Grass Seed which is most similar to what is grown on sod farms. The seed mixture will grow a naturally dark-green and beautiful lawn with excellent heat and drought tolerance.

Q. When should I seed my lawn?

A. Early fall is typically the best time to seed your lawn with our cool-season grass seeds. The soil is warm, air temperatures are cooler, autumn rains are more plentiful, and weeds are less active, creating an excellent environment for seed germination before leaves start falling and the winter cold arrives.

Q. Do I have to reseed dead patches in my lawn or will it grow back?

A. If you have a patchy lawn, the dead grass will not regrow. The best solution is to overseed the lawn or introduce some fresh seed into the thin, patchy areas. Reseeding will not eliminate disease or insect problems, however, so we recommend inspecting your lawn for diseases or insects. Jonathan Green offers a comprehensive line of problem solvers for diseases, fungus, and insects in your lawn.

Q. Does Grass Seed Get Too Old to Use?

A. If stored in a cool, dry place, grass seed can last for two to three years, but you may not get the same results as you would when planting fresh seed. As the seed ages, the percentage of seeds that will be able to germinate diminishes, forcing you to use more seed than normal to get adequate coverage. We take every precaution to ensure that Jonathan Green Black Beauty® grass seed will germinate.
