Advantages of Black Beauty® Grass Seed Rolls

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

The advantages of using Black Beauty® Seed Rolls include:

  • Fast establishment. When properly installed, germination will take only 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 year-round. Black Beauty® Grass Seed Rolls can be installed anytime in the growing season when 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 consistent 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® Seed Rolls are established, your lawn will be ready for regular foot traffic from entertaining, play, and pets.

How to Use the Seed Roll

Prepare the soil.  Do not lay the Seed Roll over existing grass. Instead, clear the area where your new lawn will be laid, removing every last piece of vegetation from the site. Loosen the top 2 inches of soil with a rake and create a smooth surface free of any debris. The Seed Roll must touch the soil to grow. Do not install Seed Roll during periods of strong winds or approaching heavy rains.

Roll It Out. Cut a roll to the desired shape and place it over the prepared area to patch bare spots. Lightly water it. Seed Roll will “stick” to the ground once moistened, so be sure it is in place before watering. For larger areas, lay as many sections as you need closely together without gaps and slightly overlap the edges. Water sections as you go along, making sure all sections are wet. Continue until you have covered the desired area.

Maintain It. Do not walk on Seed Roll immediately after installation. When finished, water frequently with a hose or sprinkler. Seed Roll locks in moisture, so watering often in small amounts is best. Keep theSeed Roll constantly wet for the first three weeks, until the new grass reaches 3 inches tall, and then start mowing.
