Build a New Lawn

When building a new lawn, use Canadian Sphagnum Peat Moss to prepare the ground for seeding. Before cultivating the soil, remove stones, sticks and other debris. Then, choose a day for planting when the soil is suitably moist—neither wet enough to cake or clod nor powdery dry.

Rototill about two inches of Canadian Peat into the top six inches of soil. Level the area to avoid minor hills and valleys and then pack the ground with a roller to squeeze out air. Spread a high quality grass seed over the entire bed, about three pounds of seed for every 1,000 square feet of lawn. Rake seeds in lightly.

Finish with an organic fertilizer rich in nitrogen, phosphate and potassium, all critical nutrients for promoting a healthy, disease-resistant lawn. Water the area with a fine spray. Ibp-dress with a quarter inch of Canadian Peat to help keep seeds moist during germination and to protect them against shock from temperature changes. Water again.

When laying sod. follow the steps listed above, but eliminate spreading and raking in seeds. Once the sod has been laid, seal the cracks between the sod rolls with a quarter-inch layer of Canadian Peat. Water at least every other day for the first two weeks.
