If you just spread new grass seed on your lawn in Arizona, there are a few things that you should do to ensure they grow successfully. First of all, you'll want to add a starter fertilizer to your lawn so that the seeds have the nutrients they need to grow strong and healthy. You will also want to add topsoil to your yard because it can protect the seeds from being blown away by the wind and help your soil retain moisture. What's more, you'll have to water your lawn often to ensure these new grass seeds have enough hydration to germinate and establish deep roots in your soil. Continue reading to learn more about what you can do to protect grass seeds after spreading them on your lawn.

Add a Starter Fertilizer to Your Lawn After Spreading New Grass Seed

After spreading new grass seed across your lawn, it is crucial that you fertilize them immediately after. That's because a starter fertilizer contains essential nutrients that help the seeds grow strong and healthy, including nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. These nutrients promote root development, encourage rapid greening, and build up the strength of your turf. By applying a starter fertilizer, you can give your new grass seeds everything they need to flourish!

Add Topsoil to Protect the New Grass Seeds & Help Your Soil Maintain Moisture

When you spread new grass seed across your lawn, they will be susceptible to being blown away by the wind or eaten by animals looking for food. To prevent this from happening, you should add topsoil to your lawn. Adding topsoil to your lawn after overseeding provides extra protection for the grass seeds as they develop into lush, green grass on your turf. It will also help your soil maintain moisture by slowing down the evaporation process, allowing your seeds to soak in the water they need to grow nice and strong.

You'll Need to Water Your Lawn Often So the New Grass Seeds Can Germinate & Establish Deep Roots

One of the most important steps you need to take after spreading grass seed is to water your lawn often. You need to water your lawn every day for the next two weeks to keep the soil moist. This is crucial because it will ensure the grass seeds have enough hydration to germinate and grow strong. This consistent watering helps the seeds germinate and establish deep roots in your soil. If you don't water your lawn often, the seeds may not be able to survive, making all the efforts to spread them useless.

Irrigation systems are perfect for providing hydration to grass seeds, and they can be set to a timer to ensure they are providing water at the right times!
