How to Determine whether Grass Seeds Have Germinated – Check for green sprouts to see whether grass seed is germinating. After planting the seeds, the sprouts will develop anywhere between a few days and two weeks later. When your grass seeds begin to grow, you must water them everyday so that they remain healthy.
- Never mow grass shorter than 3 inches, especially if it was just planted.
- The young grass will not be able to withstand the force and damage of the mower.
- Before grass to be considered durable, its roots must have ample time to develop in the soil.
- Mowing grass before it reaches a height of 3 to 4 inches can rip out the roots, resulting in uneven regrowth.
It is usual for grass not to develop within 5 to 10 days. Unfortunately, some grass seeds just will not germinate, so do not fret if you find yourself with a dud.
