After several years of throwing my money away at lawn maintenance service and watching my St. Augustine lawn die, I finally decided to seed my lawn. In February 2011 I purchased a 50lb bag of the Bahia grass seed mix with rye from Hancock Seed and seeded the rear and side of my property. I was not sure if it would work. I will let the attached photos of my lawn speak for themselves. It was not easy getting my lawn to look this way as I had to cut and remove the old lawn and lay fresh soil before I applied the seed. As you can see it was worth the hard work and now I maintain my own lawn. On February 13, 2012, nine days ago, I seeded the front of my property 5k square Ft. and already it's covered in green.
Thank you Hancock seed for a great product.
Don't buy from Z Farms all the plugs died. Hancock Seed company is way Better All there plugs are still green Not Like Z Farms where brown when i got them
Please find enclosed pictures of my lawn that was over seeded this spring with Argentine seed from your company. As you can see the results are outstanding our lawn looks as good as the golf course that our house borders. Because of the outstanding results I did not renew my contract with my pest control company I can manage the little amount of maintenance myself.
I ordered BlackJack Bermuda seed from you in April for a backyard baseball
field I constructed for my boys and their little league teams. You said we
would be playing ball on it by July--I did not believe it and would have
been happy to have it ready by next Spring. We have, in fact, been playing
on it since July 1st. See the pictures. People cannot believe it when I
show them how fast this grass established. The first two pictures were
taken only 6 days apart--look at the amazing difference.
After receiving your email regarding the results of my planting Argentine Bahia in my front yard I just want to let you know I now have a front yard with grass. It has probably taken me two years to get the lawn to what I imagined. I started with a mess. Before my first seeding I killed off most of the entire front lawn which was made up of mainly weeds, I also got my irrigation system up an running. I next brought in top soil, spread it, fertilized it and then put the seed down. I began to see a lawn but not to my full expectations, the following year I used the product Legend and killed off any weeds that I had. I reseeded in troubled areas and fertilized again with a high nitrate count. That did it, my lawn is really nice, it was worth all the work that I put into it. I am now thinking about doing the same to my back yard. I am very happy with the results of the Argentine Bahia.
