When it comes time to seed your lawn area, there is a surprising amount of seed options for you to choose from. As you might guess, each of these seed options comes with distinct advantages and disadvantages.
When we aerate and seed our client’s yard, we choose tri-blend seeding over single seeding.
Let’s detail why tri-blend seeding is a better option than single seeding your lawn.
What is Tri-Blend Seeding?
While the term tri-blend seeding can seem confusing at first, it is simpler to understand than you would first expect. A tri-blend seeding involves spreading three different varieties of a single grass seed species. By contrast, single seeding involves spreading a single grass seed variety. As you’ll soon see, there are several factors that make tri-blend seeding a better option.
Advantages of Tri-Blend Seeding Compared to Single Seeding
The primary advantage of choosing tri-blend seeding is that it leads to greater overall biodiversity within your lawn compared to single seeding. That increased genetic diversity leads to a few positive outcomes for your lawn’s health.
Since tri-blend seeding leads to greater diversity, your lawn is far more likely to remain healthy even during extreme weather changes or other fluctuations in environmental factors. By contrast, if you use single seeding, the entirety of your lawn will face equal amounts of damage from drought, fungus, and other adverse factors, making it less likely to survive and remain healthy.
Each variety within your tri-blend will have a different ability to overcome issues related to insect infestations, drought, fungus, and other common lawn problems. That differing degree of strength gives your lawn a better chance of remaining lush throughout the entire season. As such, anyone who wants a healthy lawn will be wise to select tri-blend seeding over single seeding.
Which Seeding Option is Right for You?
Ultimately, the decision over which type of seeding to use is up to you. However, there is very little value to any argument that claims single seeding is the ideal option. Instead, tri-blend seeding proves to be a better option than single seeding as it will make your lawn more biodiverse and, thus, more resilient.
