We know it's hard to think about grass seed with the way this winter is going, but spring will be here before we know it, so we wanted to update you on the turf seed market and how it will affect you. Grass seed prices started to strengthen last spring and continued to slowly rise as the year went on. This was partly due to demand, as new home construction picked up.

With other crops like corn and wheat fetching a good price, farmers are simply unwilling to grow grass seed unless they are paid more, and even then some growers are still backing away. The result is that grass seed production has dropped to a near 10-year low even though most growers are being compensated more. Read More

Trees and shrubs don't usually get proper nutrition in a manicured type environment. Grass roots will absorb most all nutrients before deeper tree feeder roots get a chance.

Trees and plants in nature get nutrients from decomposing plant matter like leaves, wood, etc. that break down to rejuvenate the soil. In a well maintained property these materials are constantly cleaned away which over time allows the soil to lose its ability to properly support trees and shrubs. Read more
