How to Plant a Great Winter Lawn

  1. You'll know it’s time to plant your winter ryegrass lawn once our night-time temperatures drop to 65° Fahrenheit—consistently, for about a week.
  2. Begin by mowing your lawn as low as possible. Remove grass cuttings (thatch) using a de-thatching rake or a power rake machine.
  3. Broadcast Ryegrass Seed at the rate of 1 to 1.5 lb. per 100 sq. ft. For lush green lawns use 1.5 lb. per 100 sq. ft., 15 lb. per 1,000 sq. ft.  
  4. Broadcast Ferti-lome New Lawn Starter Fertilizer according to directions.
  5. Lightly cover the seed with SummerWinds Soil Conditioner & Seed Cover (no deeper than 1/4 of an inch). This will help to keep the seeds moist between watering and provide cover from opportunistic birds.
  6. Water! Water! Water! 3 to 5 times a day. Seed must stay moist to germinate. The soil conditioner and seed cover you applied in step 4, above, will also act as a mulch and help retain moisture between watering. Use enough water to moisten the top 1-inch of soil. Watering times vary starting from 2-3 minutes. Avoid puddling as seed will float to the outer edge of the puddle and germinate there.

Germination will occur in 7 to 10 days. As the ‘green haze’ of new grass appears decrease watering frequency and begin watering longer. Established lawns will need watering twice a week. Daily watering is not necessary on a lawn being mowed weekly.

6. After the second mowing, fertilize with Ferti-lome New Lawn Starter Fertilizer, or Ferti-lome Green Maker premium lawn food (available at your local SummerWinds).  To keep your winter lawn growing and looking its best, fertilize your lawn with Ferti-lome Green Maker premium lawn food every 6 weeks.
