Must grass seed be planted on the surface?
Light – The seed will not grow if it is either too deeply buried or too close to the surface. In addition to sunshine, seed requires soil-provided air, heat, and moisture to germinate. Therefore, if the seed is laying on top of the soil, it will not receive the nutrients it needs to germinate.
When spreading fresh grass seed, the seed should be raked in until it is approximately three £1 coins (stacked) below the surface. This depth affords it sufficient room to develop and receive light, while also shielding it from the weather (and bothersome birds!). If your seed is buried too deeply, it will be unable to receive the air, light, and water it needs to grow.
In summary, if you aren’t watering enough and your seed is resting on top of hard dry soil, or buried too deep beneath it – you will face troubles with germination. We provide tons of tutorials on and as well as information about : Reasons why your grass seed isn’t growing this summer
How long does it take for grass to develop from a seed?
In ideal conditions, the majority of grass seed varieties will germinate within 8 to 10 days of sowing. After six to eight weeks, the grass will be fully grown and will cover the entire lawn without any spots. Taking into account the conditions in which your grass seed germinates, you are allowed to walk on it, play on it, and otherwise enjoy it after around 6 to 8 weeks.
