At Jonathan Green, lush green lawns are our business. Visit our online store to buy our premium grass seed, organic and traditional soil amendments, lawn fertilizers, and other products that will feed and improve your lawn AND your soil.

The Jonathan Green name has represented genetically superior grass seed, innovation, integrity, determination, and a commitment to excellence since 1881. Today, six generations later, we remain committed to supplying grass seed, organics, and turf products to both the independent retailer and professional lawn care markets.

Which Seed Should You Choose?

If you want the best-looking grass in the neighborhood, be sure to choose the highest quality grass seed. Jonathan Green Black Beauty® grass seed mixtures look and feel so much like Kentucky Bluegrass that even the pros have a hard time distinguishing Black Beauty® from Bluegrass.

Jonathan Green Black Beauty® grass seeds are:

  • Deeply rooted (up to 4 feet)
  • Disease resistant
  • Drought tolerant because of the invisible waxy leaf coating that preserves moisture in the plant (similar to the wax on an apple skin).
  • Naturally dark green in color
  • Uniform in leaf size and texture
  • Contain Endophytes for natural insect resistance

Black Beauty® Original Grass Seed, for example, is the original Jonathan Green grass seed blend that is grown by sod growers across the USA. It grows well in clay and sandy soils and in partial shade or full sun.

Get Your Lawn Off to a Good Start

Before you plant any seed, make sure to also have the following Jonathan Green products on hand:

  • MAG-I-CAL® Soil Food – Test your soil to ensure the pH is between 6.2 and 7.0. If it’s not, MAG-I-CAL® can be used immediately before seeding (and continuously until you improve the pH level adequately) to help balance the pH and, at the same time, help the lawn grow greener and healthier.
  • Love Your Soil® – If your soil is very hard or compacted*, Love Your Soil® will loosen it. It will also feed the soil microbes, making the soil more alive and porous. With more porous soil, air, water and roots can move more easily from the surface deep-down through the soil.
  • Veri-Green Lawn Food for Seeding & Sodding – This high phosphorus formula is specially formulated for seeding and sodding. It helps to build a vigorous root system and gets new grass plantings off to a fast start for a thicker, greener lawn.

*If you’re unsure whether your soil is compacted, try pushing a screwdriver into the soil. It should be able to easily penetrate at least six inches deep. If you find the soil hard to get through, then you have hard (compacted) soil.

Look no further than Jonathan Green’s online store for high-quality grass seed.
