Planting A New Lawn or Repairing Bare Spots in Turf
Ideal Planting Time: The best time to plant is late summer, early fall, or spring. If seeding at other times, be prepared to touch up thin or bare spots as needed.
Seedbed and Soil Preparation: Some lawns may need other soil amendments such lime. It is best to conduct a soil test prior to any new seeding. Till the soil approximately 6 inches
deep. Level with garden or landscaping rake. Surface may be firmed by rolling or soaking, then re-raking till level. Leave top 1/2 inch loose to allow seed to be worked into soil.
Fertilization: Prior to or right after seeding, apply a starter fertilizer to help proper root development. Continue using a systematic fertilizer program to maintain a healthy
Seeding: Sow seeds evenly at 7-10 pounds per 1,000 square feet. Rake lightly into soil. No more than 1/8 inch of soil should cover seed. Use a roller or other means to firmly pack
the seeded soil.
Covering: Use blankets, pelletized or paper mulch, or straw to hold soil moisture and hasten germination. Baled straw may bring in unwanted weeds; use with caution.
Watering: Do not allow soil to dry out. Keep soil moist with frequent light watering until seedlings are visible. After lawn is established, water as necessary.
Overseeding An Existing Lawn or Turf Area
Lawn Preparation: Mow lawn to 1 inch and remove clippings. Dethatch with a power rake or hand rake smaller areas.
Seeding: Sow seed evenly at 4-6 pounds per 1,000 square feet. Work seed into existing turf by raking.
Watering: Keep soil moist with frequent, light watering until grass is established.
Mowing: Follow normal mowing practices when grass reaches 3 to 4 inches in height. Never mow more than 1/3 of grass leaf off during each mowing.
Maintaining Your Titan RX Lawn or Turf
Mowing: Maintain mower height between 2 to 3 inches, never remove more than 1/3 of the grass plant with each mowing.
Weed Control: It is very common to see new weeds when planting a new lawn or disturbing the soil. For new lawns, wait 6-8 weeks before using any herbicide. For existing lawns,
the best weed control is to maintain a healthy lawn by regular fertilization, proper mowing, and watering as often as necessary.
a beautiful tomorrow!®
