Grass Seed Prices

Factors To Consider When Buying Grass Seed

There are various reasons for purchasing grass seeds. The home owner may need to fill in bare spots in the lawn or replace diseased areas. Sometimes a home owner is not satisfied with the type of grass in his lawn and decides to either plant additional types of grass or dig up the whole lawn and replace it with new grass. Perhaps the home is a newly constructed one that is yet to be planted. Whatever the reason, the home owner should consider several factors, including grass seed prices, when deciding what type of grass seed to buy.

What type of climate is the home in? Some types of grass, such as Bermuda, Bahia, and St. Augustine do better in warm or hot climates similar to their native area. Zoysia grass, which is also considered a warm season grass, is typically planted from sod or sprigs rather than seed. If the home is located in a cooler or northern climate, a cool season grass such as Fescue, Kentucky Bluegrass, or Rye might be a better option.

The label on the bag of a good quality of grass seed will contain planting instructions and how much coverage can be expected per bag of seed, as well as the name or names of the grass seeds contained within. Other determining factors in choosing which grass seed to plant include the amount of traffic the lawn receives, whether the lawn gets full or partial shade or is totally in shade, and whether the home owner wants just one type of grass or a mixture of several types of grass seeds. Also, the home owner should ask himself how much time, effort, and expense he is willing to put forth.

There is a wide range of grass seed prices and a bit of online research will help to get an idea of price before actually going to Lowes, Home Depot, Ace hardware, or other retailers who sell grass seeds. Some online retailers offer a discount for buying in bulk. Typically, name brands such as Pennington or Scotts will be a bit more expensive, but may be worth it in the long run.

Many cheap bags of grass seeds do not even list the name of the seed. Also, some of the cheaper bags of seeds will contain weed seeds and other undesirable elements. Everyone knows that lawn care takes a lot of time and work, so it just makes sense to purchase the best quality of grass seed that the budget will allow.
