A bare or spotty lawn makes the house and property look disheveled and junky, doesn't it? Seeding the lawn with grass seed helps you fix a lawn covered in empty or dead patches, but what grass type is best to use? Try seeding the lawn with grass seed to suit the Georgia zone and biome that you live in.

Many people mistakenly plant the wrong grass seed on their lawns, only to feel frustrated when the grass dies out or never germinates. Selecting the right seed type for your lawn ensures that your lawn will end up lush and full.

For zones six and seven, you can successfully grow a lawn using Ryegrass, Bluegrass or Fescue grass seed. For zones eight through 12, try using Bahiagrass, St. Augustine, Zoysia or Carpetgrass grass seed.

What grass type you choose should also depend on the biome where you live. Native-Buffalo grass seed works well in Appalachian mountain zone six but will not grow well in zones nine or 10. Grass seed that can take both heat and moisture, such as Centipede, does better in the hot, moist climate in zones 10 through 12.

If you are unsure about which biome or zone you live in, contact a lawn care specialist in the Atlanta area. If you have the money to do it, hire landscapers to seed your lawn for you. If you want to save money and seed the lawn yourself, lawn care specialists can help you pick out the right seed type.
