It's spring! Want to talk about grass seed? What kind and where to buy it?
I put down free ground Christmas tree mulch a couple of years ago to keep the sand on the ground and out of the house. To everyone's surprise, it started turning into dirt (wood usually just dessicates). Year before last we noticed some thin volunteer grass, so we watered generously, and last summer it came in reasonably good but still sparse and inconsistent. Last year we counted about 6 different varieties of grass in my "lawn". I thought I'd throw down some seed to help it get a better start this year. I only need one box, the grass part of my yard is about the size of most people's living rooms. Anyone have suggestions on type and a cheap place to buy it? I know Big Lots has grass seed but I thought it might be old stock that's not viable. It will be planted in sandy soil with very strong sun and enjoy an arid climate with summer temps running 102-112+. I'm not going to baby it, it will get plenty of water and that's it.
