It can be a real challenge to get grass seed to germinate. Even more so if Mother Nature doesn’t give enough rain, or even if she gives too much.
That begs the question: Is there a trick to successfully germinating grass seed? There most certainly is! And it’s one we discovered a few years ago that’s made cultivating grass seed a piece of cake.
How to grow grass seed: The Basics? It goes without saying that there are a few “must-haves” right off the bat if you want your grass seed to take. Unfortunately, if you don’t have the “must-haves,” the grass won’t grow well under any conditions, whether you use a hidden method or tip or not.

First and foremost, you need to choose a premium seed mixture. Choosing the right seed blend for your region is also crucial.

It is important to choose a combination of grass seeds rather than a single type of seed, but picking a good seed that is suited for your environment is also crucial. Seeds of Kentucky Blue Grass are a good example of this.
