How Much Sun do Seeds Need?

Is your yard looking a little sparse or do you have some dead spots that need repair? Now is the time to start planning to rejuvenate your lawn. According to Oregon Grass Seed the best time to plant grass seed in the Pacific Northwest is in the spring (April/May) or in the coming months of September to October.

When evaluating what type of grass seed you will need, ask yourself how much sun the areas you want to seed get. Does the area mainly just have shade with little to no sun? Then you are going to want a seed formulated for deep shade. Does the sun beat down on it all day with little shade time? Then you will want something for full sun. Or if you have a good mixture of both then you will want to go with a seed that can handle both sun and shade.

No matter what you need, we have the seed for you. We have a variety of grass seed options that cover all kinds of different sunlight intensities. We offer 5 lb, 10 lb, 25 lb, & 50 lb bags in each option, so you can get just the right amount of seed for your job!
