 Seeding Carpetgrass

CARPETGRASS The easy way!

1-2-3 Steps to Planting Seeds

Seeding: All poundage should take into consideration soil density, pH, climate, and moisture content and determined final usage of the grass planted. General guide is 3-5lb/1000 sq. ft. for lawns and 15-20 per acre.

CARPETGRASS  LAWNS   FROM  SEED

First question that must be answered is will you be "starting from scratch"?  A decision must be made either plant within an existing lawn or to till up the yard area so that no weeds or grasses are living in the area to be planted.  The ideal situation is to have tilled soil for the area where you wish to establish a grass.  Why?  Because existing plants that are directly next to (6 inches) of where you are trying to establish other grass plants from seed, provide competition to your seeds by consuming sunlight & plant nutrients.  This competition by existing plants means some plants simply won't survive the addition stress imposed by these adult plants.  This is not to say you can't establish a lawn within other plants, just that it is much more difficult to do so.

The 1-2-3 Steps

First: Decide if you will tiller the soil or just plant within existing grass.  TillingNot Tilling?

NOT TILLING: You are not tilling the soil - and are planting seeds within the existing grass & weeds;
(1) Mow the area - Then Sow (broadcast) your bahaigrass seeds on the area to be planted. 
(2) Rake the area sowed with a rake so that scratch marks in the soil between plants allow some seeds to fall into these valleys and become covered by soil.  Carpetgrass seeds must have a thin soil covering to germinate. 
(3) Water, fertilize and mow the area you have planted on a regular basis.  Thats all!  Eventually (After several months of growth), you should have a nice Carpetgrass lawn.

TILLING:   Planting on correctly prepared and tilled soil.
(1) Till the area to be planted.  This can be done with either a garden tiller or a tractor harrow/tiller.  Once the area is soil, level the ground by raking or draging something over the surface until it is smooth and level.  Now is the time to remove hills and depressions so that you have a nice smooth lawn.

(2) Plant the seeds.  You can use a commerical planter or sow the seeds by hand, or even easier, buy a broadcast seeder from your hardware store (hand held models are available for $20-30).  Once your seeds are sowed, rake or drag the seeded area, so that as many of the seeds as possible are lightly covered (1/4 inch is ideal covering).


(3) Water the area you have planted as needed.  Apply fertilizer in intervals through the growing season, and practice a regular mowing schedule.  Mowing the weeds that will grow faster than the grass allows the grass to compete better for scarce nutrients and sunlight.
