Ryegrass seed are "throw and grow" seed that can be planted without the hassle of tilling or digging into the soil and destroying any of the permanent ground covers already in place. First, perform a soil test, applying lime as needed. Please see recommended lime chart. Till or rough up the soil. Using a spreader, spread the seed. Rake the seed into the soil no deeper than the recommended planting depth noted above to establish good seed to soil contact. Keep the area moist until germination.

Fertilization Of Your Annual Rye Grass

Fertilize with a balanced starter fertilizer 2-4 weeks before planting.

Watering Your Annual Rye Grass

First planting – Water twice a day for approximately 5 minutes. You are just trying to get the seed moist so it will germinate. Once the seed has germinated you will water less often but for a longer period of time. For example, every other day or every third or fourth day for 20-30 minutes until the seed has matured. What this does is train the roots to dig within the soil to access water and will help the plant to become more drought tolerant.

Care & Maintenance Of your Annual Rye Grass

Once lawn is established, apply a pre-emergent in early spring. If weeds persist, apply an herbicide in mid-spring. Do not apply any weed killers until at least 3-4 weeks after establishment. Use lime when pH is low.
