Tips for Effective Power Seeding
To ensure the power seeding you have performed is as effective as possible, it’s important to take a couple of additional steps:
- Keep the soil relatively moist for the first month after seeding. Immature roots dry out faster than mature grass. As the grass matures, watering can be reduced.
- Your lawn should be mowed 1/3 higher than normal. You should have sharp mower blades and make sure the grass is dry so you don’t pull the grass out of the ground while cutting.
If you’re like most adults, you don’t have the time to work on your lawn and make it look great. That’s when it’s time to call the professionals at Green Machine.

Get Your Lawn Growing Faster & Healthier with Power Seeding
Don’t just spread the seed – shoot it deep into the soil.
When you use the typical seed spreader, the machine simply distributes the seed over the top of the ground. This does lead to more grass plants, but unfortunately, it’s not as effective as it could be.
A power seeder, on the other hand, cuts slits into the soil and drops the seeds ¼” to ½” down into the soil. The benefits of power seeding to your Pennsylvania lawn include:
Increased turf density
More difficult for weeds to grow
Insects have a harder time infiltrating your lawn
A healthier, more attractive look for your grass
Increased germination rate (95%) compared to aeration and regular seeding (50 – 60%)
