OPN Seed's Clover Lawn Mix is designed for those homeowners that are not afraid to let it go a little bit. The fescues and clovers mix together to form a lush landscape for humans and our wildlife friends to enjoy. The average growth of the species is 12 - 18 inches with some species getting slightly taller depending on site resources. Watch rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks and birds hop and forage in the landscape you created while you're not mowing. Please note this mix can be mowed if desired. So, if you're having a party and want to mow it short, go for it! It will grow right back! This mix is the perfect hybrid lawn for urban, suburban or country landscapes.
Planting Times and Recommendations:
In the spring when daytime temperatures are getting warmer and nights are still cool. This is typically between April and early June. In the late summer cooler days and nights will help the seeds to establish. This is typically late August through September.
Sow the seed into a prepared seed bed, lightly rake it in, and cover the areas lightly with a clean and weed free straw. This mix can be over seeded into an existing lawn as well to enhance it and add these species in. If possible, lightly roll the seeded area with a lawn roller or tractor tires to help get good seed to soil contact. Water the seed in at installation and after that if there is no rain in the forecast. Watering in the early mornings and evenings is best. If needed, watering should continue until the plants reach heights of at least 6 inches.
