We've removed the Annual Rye in Freedom Lawn III that gives you the same benefits of having a low maintenance lawn, but eliminates the need for mowing during the establishment phase. Use this mix to over seed an area already established with any of our Freedom Lawn mixes or create a border against your native prairie areas. Once established, grasses typically grow to about 6 to 12 inches tall.
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.
