"The team did a spring yard cleanup, weeding, bush and tree trimming, mulching and edged around the mulch beds. Great job at a great price. I've referred them to my daughter and I'd hire them again!"

Sometimes lawns need a bit of help to look lush and green. Turf can start to look patchy and thin after bad weather, and it can disappear altogether when your yard's soil isn't the right fit for your grass variety. Even regular watering and lawn maintenance can't make grass grow under some conditions. If you want a green lawn but all your efforts aren't paying out, find a grass seeding company in your area that can help.

Local lawn seeding services know what grass variety is the best fit for your yard. Everything from soil type to foot traffic or even shade from nearby plants can impact the turf. Not only can local experts seed your lawn with the best grass for your specific yard, they can recommend varieties that need less irrigation. Find a grass seeding company that can also:

  • Overseed your lawn for fuller coverage.
  • Test and amend the soil's pH levels, chemical contents, and nutrient levels.
  • Prepare your lawn's surface so the new seeds have optimal conditions for healthy growth.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the price of seeding a lawn?

Most homeowners pay between $400 and $1,500 to seed their lawn. The exact price depends on the size of your yard. Estimate with $0.04 to $0.07 per square foot. Re-seeding of an existing lawn in good condition only costs between $80 and $150.

A number of other variables can add to your project costs:

  • Fertilizer: $50 - $80
  • Rock and stone removal: $200 - $400
  • Sprinkler system installation: $2,500 - $3,500

Will grass seed grow if you just throw it on the ground?

If you just sprinkle grass seed on your bare patches, the chances of growth are low. Heavy rains can wash it away, and critters can pick it off. It's better to be methodical in the seeding process:

  1. Loosen the dirt
  2. Add fertilizer
  3. Spread the seeds evenly
  4. Lightly cover with topsoil
  5. Water regularly during dry periods

How do I prepare my lawn for seeding?

  1. Clear the area of any plants, bushes, or shrubbery.
  2. Loosen the soil and remove any stones and rocks.
  3. Rake the soil to remove old grass, sticks, and other loose debris.
  4. Lightly water the area to make the soil more receptive to seeds.
  5. Add in fertilizer and nutrients.

How can I find the right lawn seeding company?

A few steps can help you make sure that the company you work with is credible and will do a good job:

  • Start with an evaluation. Make sure the company knows your lawn before they make recommendations.
  • Look for online reviews to get a better idea of their quality of work
  • Ask about the best process to treat your lawn.
  • Request a quote that includes all variables and fees.
  • Request a timeline that works for your lawn and the company.
  • Ask about long-term care to make sure the grass grows and stays healthy.
