My new grass seed is growing spotty?
I planted new grass about 3 weeks ago in some areas that needed new grass grown. There is new grass growing in but in scarce areas and is spotty. Is that normal? Should I replant more seed?
Where are you located ?
What kind of grass seed ?
Have you been watering it ?
Growing conditions- shade, sun ?
Did you use Spring fertilizer with Halts at all ?
its a mix seed
water at least twice daily
good sun on all day and shade towards end of day
Consider a germination blanket or straw.
BTW, seed typically does not germinate until the air temperature is consistently above 60F.
You're not going to get instant turf unless you put down sod.
Given that, best time of the year to put down seed is fall.
Sometime about the time I'm ready to give up on grass it'll pop up.
Different varieties germinate at different rates , also it's been a lousy spring , it warmed up then got cold and dry ( at least on your southern border).
Warmer temps coming quick though .
Straw helps and quality seed also.
