Best of all, perennial ryegrass is known to last up to three growing seasons!
Large grass seed manufacturers are constantly improving their grass seed, breeding for quick germination, disease resistance, and drought tolerance. Plus you can find the same seeds again next year to get the same look – something that most homeowners want in their lawns! Most grass seed problems can be avoided simply by choosing fresh grass seeds suited to your area.
