ANNUAL RYEGRASS - SOUTHERN LAWNS

Your Lawn Will Begin to go from Brown to Green in just a Week with Oregon-Grown Ryegrass Oregon-Grown Ryegrass is the environmentally sound choice for a handsome home lawn all winter long.  Home lawns created with Oregon-grown Ryegrass have many benefits beyond traditional good looks.

A healthy lawn reduces the need for pesticides to control weeds and other unwanted vegetation. When overseeding your existing lawn with Oregon-grown Annual Ryegrass it takes surprisingly little water for seed germination and maintenance of your lawn during the winter months.  Ryegrass Lawn

In addition lawns can help cool the environment. On a hot day, the surface of a lawn can hover around 75° Fahrenheit, while a sidewalk or street can be well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Finally, a healthy lawn 50' x 50' produces enough oxygen for a family of four.

Four Steps To A Lush Green Winter Ryegrass Lawn

Mow your lawn at the lowest possible setting and remove clippings. Rake lawn with metal-tine rake to remove debris which may have collected at the base of grass plants so that the Ryegrass will be in contact with the soil.

Apply (according to instructions on the bag) a balanced fertilizer. "Slow-release" fertilizers are best because they release nutrients gradually as the new grass plants need them but fertilizers recommended by your seed dealer will be satisfactory.

Sow Oregon-grown Ryegrass at the rate of 5-15 pounds per 1,000 ft. Heavier seeding rates produce a thicker, greener lawn. Seed is best sown with a drop spreader - which can be purchased or rented - but successful applications may be made with hand-cranked whirlwind spreaders. If a mechanical spreader is not available, seed may be sown by hand. To assure that seeds make contact with the ground, rake the lawn lightly with the back of a rake after the seed has been sown.

After sowing the seed, keep the lawn moist so that the new grass plants will develop a strong root system. Frequent light waterings are recommended because heavy watering may create run-off which could unevenly re-distribute the seed before it has germinated.
