Many of our customers have had a spring clean up service performed which may have included an application of grass seed to fill in bare spots that have appeared over the winter.
Lately, the nighttime temps (and even during the day) have been down right cold. In fact, a few days earlier in the month the night time temps hovered around freezing. So, it is common to ask if these cold temps ruin the new grass seed.
Fortunately, most grass seeds recover from exposure to cold weather, although cold temperatures may delay their ability to germinate and begin growing. Grass seed is generally hardy and unlikely to be killed by cold weather like we have been experiencing.
Hopefully, we are nearing the end of the cold nights and we will be back in the seasonal temperatures for late April.
If you have bare spots in your lawn, let us know. We'll be happy to fill them in with the right grass seed for the area, cover with starter fertilizer specially made for new seed and cover with peat moss to keep in the moisture. That way, once you are ready for backyard picnics and barbecues, your lawn will be lush and green.
