Transform Your Lawn with Buffalo Brand Seed

Monday April 17, 2023

Achieving a lush and eco-friendly lawn can be a challenge, but with the right knowledge and tools, it’s possible. That’s why we spoke with Todd Land from Buffalo Brand Seed Company to learn about how to plant grass seed in different scenarios for optimal results.

First, Todd stressed the importance of aerating your existing lawn. This step may seem unnecessary, but it creates air pockets for water, feed, and light to penetrate the soil, reducing water needs and promoting a healthier, greener lawn. Once the soil is aerated, Todd recommends using the Economy Lawn Mix to spread the seed by hand or with a fertilizer spreader.

Next up is new seeding. To ensure success, it’s crucial to have good organic matter in the soil. Todd suggests using Boss Soil supplements for this step. After spreading the seed, gently rake it into the ground and ensure good seed-soil contact. This is the most important part of planting seed, and will ensure that your new grass grows strong and healthy.

Finally, we all have those pesky dog spots in our lawn. To fix them, mix potting soil, Boss Soil, and two handfuls of seed in half of a five-gallon bucket, then pat the mixture into the spot.

With these tips from Buffalo Brand Seed, you’ll be well on your way to achieving the lush, eco-friendly lawn you’ve always wanted. Visit O’Toole’s Garden Centers to find the tools and products you need to get started.
