How To Plant Jonathan Green Black Beauty Grass Seed
Mow – Before seeding, mow the lawn at the lowest mower setting to enable the seed to enter the soil. Rake –Using a metal rake, rake over the current grass to loosen the soil by removing the thatch layer and any debris. Fill in holes and level the field with more topsoil.
Check the pH level of your soil –Get a soil test performed to determine the pH level of your soil. The ideal pH range for soil is 6.2 to 7.0. To quickly raise the pH of a lawn with a pH below 6.2, use Jonathan Green Mag-I-Cal® Plus for Lawns in Acidic & Hard Soil. If the pH of the soil is higher than 7.0, use Mag-I-Cal® Plus for Lawns in Alkaline & Hard Soil to quickly lower the pH.

When to plant – Between mid-August and mid-October, when the field is still warm and the nights are colder, is the best time to plant seed. When the soil temperature exceeds 55 degrees Fahrenheit and the air temperature remains reliably high, the next best time to plant is from mid-March to mid-May.
Spread seed – Using a rotary spreader, apply half of the seed in one direction (north to south) and the rest in the opposite direction (east to west). At this time, it's also a good idea to apply a new phosphorus-rich seeding fertilizer.
Rake seed – Using a metal rake, gently rake seed into the dirt. Firm the soil around the seed with light, even footsteps on the seedbed. Bury the seed no more than 14 inches long.
