Contractors Mix is a blend of 80% tall fescue grass seed with 20% annual rye grass seed. This blend is known for giving a rapid green cover and soil stabilization. It should be used in areas that may be disturbed and seeded again at a later date. This is a great inexpensive seed for a construction site or ground that has recently been disturbed. The annual rye grass seed has a fast germination rate so is great at stabilizing the ground and then the tall fescue grass seed can fill in and grow thick.
The Mill recommends testing soil before applying grass seed or fertilizer. A soil test analyzes available nutrients. Having this information allows us to help you make the best decisions for your lawn, leading to a more beautiful and thicker lawn. The Mill offers soil testing.
When seeding or over-seeding, add Starter Fertilizer 18-24-12 to give your lawn an extra boost. Please note: Grass seed and a pre-emergent (like Prodiamine) cannot be spread at the same time.
