Grass Won't Grow?

Jonathan Green Lawn Care

Having trouble with seeding or overseeding? Tips from Jonathan Green.

Here are the top reasons why your grass seed may not be growing.

TEMPERATURE: Soil temperature must be at least 50 degrees for grass seed to germinate. This usually happens when  air temperatures are above 60 degrees for multiple days in a row.

SUNLIGHT: All plants need some sun to grow. Grass needs at least 3-4 hours of sunlight per day to grow lush and healthy.

WATER: Too much or too little water can hinder seed germination. Water 1-2 times per day for 5-10 minutes for the first few weeks after seeding.

SOIL pH: Grass struggles to grow in soil that is too acidic or too alkaline. Test your soil and then adjust the pH with soil food.
