As construction moves out of certain areas, grass seed, topsoil, and a straw blanket/and or pen mulch, are applied to disturbed turf areas. Here are a few tips you can use to best establish a strong turf:

  • Keeping the soil moist is critical. Light, daily watering for at least three weeks is recommended. Do not allow this area to dry out. Frequent watering will help keep adequate surface moisture.
  • Overwatering or using high pressure can wash away seed and create bare spots.  The restored area should not be soggy.
  • The straw blanket keeps the seed, soil, and fertilizers in place and helps keep animals from reaching the seed.
  • Check often for weed seedlings and pull them early before they establish.
  • Weeds may come up and push the blanket off the ground.  Use a utility knife to cut a hole in the blanket, so it lays flat on the ground.
  • Begin mowing once grass has reached the height of 3 to 3 ½ inches.
