Before we arrive to install Lane Soil & Seed:
- Determine Your Square Footage
Use a tape measure to determine the square footage of your planned lawn. Multiply length by width. Determine the depth of the soil to be added. If you need help calculating the quantity you can call us, 541-345-9085, or use our yardage calculator located in the side bar to the right.
- Check Your Soil pH
Without the correct pH, seeds may not take root. But it can be easily corrected! If the pH is less than 6.5, add 50 lbs. of Lime with Humic Acid per 1,000 square feet to balance the pH for optimal growing conditions. Generally, the soil in the Lane County area is acidic, so the addition of lime is warranted. Call us to discuss your lawn’s specific needs or if you need help determining how much lime to add.
- Final Prep
The area needs to be graded and rolled prior to installation to prevent uneven spots where water may pool. Roll and grade the lawn after installation to help keep your lawn solid and not spongy and to prevent it from settling unevenly.
