Make sure you have the right soil

To accomplish this, grade the ground and make sure it is level, this allows the mixture to spread evenly and provide an adequate foundation for the grass to grow. It is essential to weed your soil , and ensure that it is clean of debris that might stop the grass from developing correctly.


Water-Water Water

Seedlings must be watered three to four every day initially. Once the grass begins to grow, you can decrease the frequency. The seeds need to be watered on a regular basis in order to root and grow correctly. Sprinkler systems can be set up to give the soil water as it grows , and then decrease its irrigation when it's fully grown and is being maintained.




Mowing your grass will aid in keeping your grass healthy and ensure there's new growth. Be sure that your new growth is at least 3 inches tall. This will prevent any possible damage.




For the development of grass, fertilizing is essential. It is recommended to fertilize your lawn every 90-120 days using a high-nitrogen fertilizer.


It's not your fault.

Avoid making contact with the area as you can because contact can cause thinning or bald spots in places where pressure is applied. Seedlings are vulnerable during the first two to three weeks. Avoid physical contact with them until then. Sprinklers are a great way to water the zone without having to touch it.
