Jonathan Green’s Top Dress™ Seedling Cover and Growth Accelerator protects new grass seedlings by preventing washouts and erosion of the seedbed while simultaneously concealing the seed from birds. Good seed to soil contact and consistent moisture are required to get new turfgrass seedlings off to a proper start.
The mulch swells to encase the seed in a warm moist blanket. Once the new grass plants are rooted, the mulch biodegrades and disappears into the soil so there is no need for removal. Mow the new lawn when the turfgrass grows three inches tall. Germination time for this seed depends on the seed mixture planted.
