People need something to blame when a planting goes bad. Usually we're talking about a failed seeding.
Our experience of a thousand seedings has proven our Connecticut soils are over 99% suitable for supporting good lawns.
But they are misperceptions of soil:
- When it is exposed to air and light:
Of course it looks bad, soils dry out (or puddle) when there is insufficient ground cover.
- When you can see all the stones in it:
Perfectly good lawn have stones in their soil too, you just can't usually see them.
- When there's a high (reddish) clay contact:
Those soils retain moisture and nutrients the best.
The point is, these same soils are the ones we grow great lawns in
, often shortly after they are blamed for the previous seeding failure.
