pacocha-installing-seed-germination-blanketWhenever starting a new lawn from seed, it is highly recommended to cover all improved bare soil/seed planted areas with germination blanket for best results. Β Seed germination blanket is a bio-degradable, wood fiber stranded mat-like material that is sold by the roll (4′ or 8′ wide x 150’+/- long) and often times includes nylon netting for strength. Β Use germination blanket to cover any/all large seed planted bare soil areas.pacocha-stapling-seed-germination-blanket-to-soil Β For smaller lawn repairs (+/- 10 square feet), a simple peat moss covering is still preferred.

Here are a few reasons why you should use seed germination blanket when planting a new lawn from seed.

  • Protect newly planted seed from blowing wind, feeding birds and even heavy rain down pours.pacocha-rear-of-back-yard-lawn-repair-seed-germination-blanket
  • Steel staples (4″ to 6″ long) provide secure attachment of blanket to soil below.
  • Reduce air-borne weed seed from ever contacting soil.
  • Great soil erosion protection (prior to grass establishment in particular).
  • Achieve fantastic seed germination rates!
  • Clean overall appearance.
  • New grass grows directly through blanket covering, no need to remove.
  • Retains water to further aid in seed germination/plant root development.
  • Unwanted debris can be easily blown off blanket covering with little chance of seed disturbance.
