Questions and Answers
Planting & Care
How to Plant & Care for Your new Lesco Transition Blend Grass Seed
Recommended Maintenance Practices:
Highest quality and durability is reached using moderate to high maintenance levels. Allow turf to establish prior to heavy use. Excellent results can be obtained using slit seeders for turf renovation. Maximum competition against Poa Annua is achieved with fall seeding. Mowing at 2” to 3” heights is recommended (lower mowing heights require higher maintenance).
Turf Establishment Guidelines:
Adequate seed bed preparation is important in new turf grass establishment as well as in over seeding. Check soil pH and apply a Starter Fertilizer (18-24-12) prior to seeding. Cool season grasses germinate best in the 60º to 85º F (16º to 30º C) soil temperature range. Select Tall Fescue Blend will germinate the best in soil temperatures of 65° or above. Frequent light irrigation and/or seed starter mulch is required for optimum germination. Germination should be visible within 14 days; complete turf establishment will take two to six months.
Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.
Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.
Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil. Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.
Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.
Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.
Finish up by mulching around your new plant. Apply 2 - 3 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.
Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.
