"Playing fields covered with dense turf have proven safer, as demonstrated by a simple egg drop test. When a dozen raw eggs were dropped from a height of 11 feet onto a two-inch thick piece of dense turf, none broke; two thirds of them broke on thin turf from that height; and from just 18 inches up, all broke on an all-weather track!"




Frost Seeding

Frost seeding is the newest and most effective way of establishing turf in the spring time of the year. The spring time ranks as second only to fall as the most ideal time to establish turf. Ideally, frost seeding should be done anytime from late February to late March. 

1)  Broadcast the seed either by hand or with a spreader over the bare frozen ground. 

  • As the frost begins to leave the ground, the soil surface expands and contracts in order to allow the moisture to escape. This produces a honeycombing effect with tiny openings being created in the soil surface. It is through these openings that the seed is able to work its way down into the soil to begin germination. As the soil temperature rises, combined with spring moisture the seed is present and ready to begin growing.

2) Once the seed has germinated, it is important to begin watering as needed.

  • On new grasses, we recommend enough water to keep the surface of the ground damp. This should continue until the new grass has been mowed 3-4 times. Then water as needed, the same way you normally do with your established turf areas.
