Lawn Service Jacksonville FL | SouthernGreenUSA.comHave you picked out the right seed for your landscape? If the answer is yes, then you are ready to start planting! The Southern Green team is here to help you get started.

Before you plant your seeds, you need to make sure the ground is ready. Your lawn should be moist and leveled before your put the seed down to ensure that your ground will accept the seed and it will grow properly. You will also need to rake the ground with a heavy garden rake, as this will create furrows when your seeds are planted.

There are many different ways to seed a lawn, including planting by hand and using mechanical equipment. If you have a larger landscape, you’ll want to consider investing in a seed spreader to make certain you are evenly distributing seed over the area. For the best results, you’ll want to apply half the seeds in one direction, and then apply the other half at a right angle from the first seeding.
