Frequently Asked Questions
~ Is your grass seed for this area?
Of course! Our grass seed mixes are all Northern types, perfect for this area.
~ What are your hours?
Our hours can change seasonally, so be sure to check our home page here on the website and our Facebook page for the most up to date information. Of course, you can always call us to check if we are open before coming to our store.
~ What mix do I use for sun & shade?
Use Town & Country for mostly sun and some shade.
Use Shady Spot for full shade or full sun.
~ What size bags do you have?
All of our mixes come in 3lb, 25lb, and 50lb bags. No, sorry, there is nothing between 3lbs and 25lbs, our machines don't make that a possibility.
~ What mix do I use for sandy soil?
Our Sandy Soil Tall Fescue mix or our Proprietary blend are good in sandy soils. The Sandy Soil is a medium bladed grass, and the Proprietary is a fine bladed grass, and both are turf grasses, so you can choose which one you would like in your lawn.
~ Do you have something to kill the clover in my lawn?
Yes, we do. Our Lebanon Proscape products 19-0-6 with LOCKUP and 20-0-7 with Trimec will both kill broadleaf weeds, including clover.
*DID YOU KNOW? Clover adds nitrogen to your soil naturally, and stays green throughout the dry summer months when grass goes dormant.
~ What is the difference between the 19-0-6 with LOCKUP and the 20-0-7 with Trimec for broadleaf weed control?
Aside from the slight difference in coverage (11,500 sq ft for 19-0-6, and 10,000 sq ft for 20-0-7), the 20-0-7 with Trimec should be used if you are planning to seed soon after. The 19-0-6 with LOCKUP requires 4-5 weeks before you can plant seed, after application.
~ Do I need to use a fertilizer when I plant seed?
We do recommend using a starter fertilizer, which is a fertilizer with phosphorous in the mix (which is the middle number in the number formulas) to give the seed a strong start and a better root base. Our starter fertilizers come in a small bag that covers 3,000-5,000 sq ft, and a large bag that covers 12,500 sq ft. We also carry specialized starter fertilizers for controlling weeds or balancing the pH of your soil (see our grass seed pricelist for our selection).
~ My grass keeps thinning in the shade. What do I do?
This is a common challenge in lawns. Shade is always challenging for growing grass. Our Shady Spot mix will tolerate shade, but sometimes there are other hidden issues like pH balance, or tree root systems that make it very challenging to grow anything, let alone grass.
~ Do you sell wildflower seed?
Yes! We sell it by the ounce or pound, and have a full sun or partial shade mix.
Full Sun - $22.00/lb, $1.50 - $2.25/oz
Partial Shade - $25.00/lb, $1.75 - $2.50/oz
*DID YOU KNOW? Planting wildflower in the Spring is the best time, as it allows the annuals in the mix to have time to go to seed, thus reseeding themselves for the next year.
~ Do you sell seed for deer food plots?
Yes, we have several varieties to choose from to customize your plot, including several clovers, Purple Top turnip, Daikon radish and Birdsfoot Trefoil. We have 1lb bags available which range in price from $4.00 - $8.00/lb. If you need larger quantities, please call ahead to order, and we can weigh out what you need.
