All lawns need water in dry periods. Landscape Range General Purpose Seed Blend lawns will need additional irrigation in hot Summer months. Water at least twice a week – more frequently in extreme weather weeks. Handy tip: If you walk on your lawn and it doesn’t spring back – it needs water.

Optimum Soil Type is Sandy Loam. A good seed bed is the key to a great lawn.
