The importance of grass seed selection for your Richmond lawn

A lush, green lawn is the pride of any homeowner, and achieving such beauty requires careful consideration of grass seed selection. At Turf Professors, we understand the significance of choosing the right seed for a healthy and sustainable lawn. In this blog post, we'll discuss the importance of using a three-way mix of turf type tall fescue seed that is blue tag certified and explain why it's crucial to avoid grass seed from big box stores.

Blue Tag Certified Grass Seed:

Blue tag certified grass seed is a mark of quality and assurance. It signifies that the seed has undergone rigorous testing and meets the standards set by the Virginia and Maryland National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP). This certification ensures that the grass seed is 100% weed-free and 100% free from other crop contamination. By using blue tag certified grass seed, you can rest assured that your lawn will be free from unwanted weeds and potential crop-related issues.

Superior Germination Rates:

Fresh seed that has been tested and blue tag certified offers exceptional germination rates. This means that a higher percentage of the seed will successfully sprout and establish itself in your lawn. The result is a denser, healthier turf that can better resist heat stress, disease, and other environmental challenges. With Turf Professors' custom blend of tall fescue varieties, you can trust that your lawn will receive the best quality seed available.

Avoiding Long-Term Problems:

While some lawn care providers may opt for more affordable grass seed options, compromising on seed quality can lead to long-term problems for your lawn. Using low-quality seed may result in increased weed infestations, poor growth, and reduced resistance to diseases. As the experts responsible for maintaining your lawn's health and appearance, Turf Professors would never compromise on the quality and purity of the grass seed varieties we select.
