Aeration and seeding season is fast approaching. This year has provided many challenges for seed growers as they have faced drought conditions in their regions, as well as wildfires that have destroyed a portion of seed crops. In addition to growing challenges, seed purchasers are facing distribution challenges due to pandemic-related shipping cost increases and labor shortages. For consumers, this means that it is extra important that you make sure you purchase quality grass seed.
How has seed quality been impacted?
One of the big ways that seed quality is impacted by these issues is simply the availability of good seed. Big box stores and large lawn care organizations always buy up huge quantities of seed so that they can stock their shelves and service their customers. In general, large volume purchases tend to equal lessor quality so profit margins can be higher. The less you pay for seed at a wholesale level, the more money you make at a retail level.
When you add on shortages and distribution issues, this means that seed is in even greater demand and many small lawn care businesses did not order early enough to ensure they get the good stuff. Fortunately, at Green Group Oklahoma, we closely monitor seed growers year-round and saw these problems coming. When you order seeding and aeration services from us, you can rest assured that you will be getting top of the line, blue tag seed, that is guaranteed to be weed-free. After all, why would you want to put more weeds into your lawn, when you are paying us to try and get them out?
