Planting & Seeding

Previous | Next Service 

Picture Perfect Landscaping can help you plant your lawn by seed which can have advantages and disadvantages to other methods such as laying sod, plugging, etc.

Advantages of seeding

  1. It is much less expensive to plant than sod.

  2. You can choose from a wide variety of grass seeds and mixtures.

  3. Seeded lawns tend to be more durable due to the deep root systems that form.

Choosing your grass seed

The best times to plant cool-season grasses are in the early fall, and
warm-season grasses in the late spring. There are also many other considerations
such as durability, shade tolerance, drought tolerance, etc. that can be
associated with each grass in the "Getting to Know" your lawn section. So make
sure you pick the right grass for you. Finally, there is the issue of grass
texture. Some people will want a finely-groomed lawn and therefore, will want a
fine-textured grass -- while others will not care. Just keep in mind that the
grasses with fine textures tend to be: bluegrass, bermuda, ryegrass, bentgrass,
and fine fescues.
