Commercial Lawn Seeding Service

Has your commercial property's lawn seen better days? Time and heavy foot traffic can take their toll on a lawn. Fortunately, seeding a lawn can improve turf density, combat weeds, and increase your lawn's tolerance to drought and turf disease.

The Grounds Guys are your local experts for commercial lawn seeding that can bring back the lush, green look of your lawn. Our commercial lawn seeding service experts have years of experience and know what it takes to establish a healthy, thriving lawn from seed.

Commercial Lawn Seeding Methods

Here are some of the successful lawn seeding methods we can use to develop a lush, green lawn for your commercial property:


This process makes it much easier for air, nutrients, and water to penetrate deep into the soil so newly developing grass roots can grow strong. It also makes it easier for newly germinated seeds to sprout through the soil's surface.

Slit seeding

This is a mechanical method of planting grass seeds that combines dethatching during the seeding process. This helps break up the soil during seeding, which gives the new seeds a better chance to take root and grow.

Lawn over-seeding

Our commercial lawn over-seeding service is a great way to fill bare spots on your lawn. It also help improve the overall turf density, grass varieties, and enhances your lawn's color. Our commercial lawn over-seeding service is often accompanied by our core aeration service, which helps water and nutrients penetrate the soil more easily for effective growth.


This process can help new seedlings get better established during the early growth stage. The topdressing method has proven more effective for new lawn growth than just laying seeds on native soil.


This method of developing a new lawn involves spraying a suspension of fertilizer, mulch, and water onto the area . Applying frequent light watering to hydro-seed surfaces keeps them from drying out and promotes lawn growth.

Straw mulching

Covering a newly seeded lawn with straw mulching helps enhance soil moisture and heat retention, which improves the rate of grass seed germination. The straw layer helps retain heat and moisture. This keeps the soil hydrated and protects the new seeds from cold temperatures, which could damage or kill the seed.

Fertilization program

Fertilizers provides the most crucial nutrients required to grow a new lawn. Your local experts at The Grounds Guys offer fertilization programs to ensure your fresh soon-to-be grass is healthy and always looks its best.

Watering a Newly Seeded Lawn

For best results, we recommend watering the grass seedlings two to three times daily for about five to ten minutes (depending on weather conditions). To promote healthy growth seedlings should get about seven to ten centimeters of water per week. Once the grass seeds germinate, once daily watering for about 15 to 20 minutes is sufficient for continued growth.

How Long Does It Take for Grass Seed to Grow?

Seedling growth depends on several factors. New grass seeds can take anywhere from 3 to 28 days to grow. Factors such as your climate, weather conditions, and the type of grass you plant play a large part in determining how long it will take for the new grass seed to grow. In ideal conditions, new grass should begin to develop and grow within 7 to 14 days.
