Similarly, it is asked, what can I cover my grass seed with?
Spread a light layer of your chosen mulch evenly over the entire seeded area. Use 1/4-inch of sawdust, light peat moss or shredded newspaper, except for pages printed on glossy paper. er the seeds for mulch that will biodegrade over time.
One may also ask, how do you pre germinate grass seed in burlap sacks? Pre-Germinating Seed
- Put the seed into a permeable container--burlap sack or something similar.
- Fill a bucket or some other type of container with clean, room temp water and put the seed into the bucket and let soak.
- Pull the seed out and let it drain.
- Repeat this process for about 5 days (for bluegrass)
Also to know, does burlap decompose?
Myth: When planting, it's not necessary to remove the burlap wrapping from trees and shrubs because the material will decompose. Truth: Yes, real burlap will decompose over time, but it doesn't happen overnight. In fact, the decomposition process may take a decade or more.
Will grass seed grow if I just throw it down?
If you simply throw grass seed onto compacted soil, you will get poor germination. I'm not a lawn expert, but if I was going to go to the cost and effort of spreading grass seed on my existing lawn, I would definitely spread a thin layer of finely sifted compost or topsoil over the top of the seed.
