Why choose our seed?
Plant breeders produce improved varieties, improved varieties produce a better lawn.
The certified seed varieties, mixtures, and blends we sell are your assurance of a superior lawn that will beautify your property for years and years to come.
Through the science of conventional plant breeding, turfgrass breeders select individual grass plants for quality, color, density, resistance to diseases and insects, tolerance to heat, cold and much more.
After years of selection and natural cross breeding of the strongest and most attractive plants, the new seed variety is examined by two independent expert panels to verify 1) uniformity, 2) uniqueness, 3) stability, and 4) eligibility for seed certification.
Remember, inferior turfgrass seed will never produce a superior lawn no matter how much time, effort and money you invest after planting.
June is a good time to inspect your lawn for insect damage.
The most common and destructive lawn insect pest in the northern growing area is the grub, or larval stage of the Japanese Beetle. This grub feeds on the roots of turfgrass plants during the spring and early summer. if you can easily pull up patches of dead or dying turf with no sign of roots you probably have grubs.
Japanese beetle grubs come to the surface around 4th of July in northern climates as round black beetles with tell tale black iridescent shells. Japanese beetles live for about 30 days before depositing eggs in the soil and dying.
The best time to apply grub killer is in August when the Japanese beetle eggs are small and near the surface. A less effective time to apply grub control is late spring and early summer when grubs are largest and more difficult to kill.
Insecticides do not harm seed so you can plant seed in the fall after treating for grubs.
