Splendid is the Grass


The Versatile Classen Turf Seeder

Seeding is the process of embedding seed into the soil at an appropriate depth. While this can be done manually by “turning the lawn” and dropping in seed, the results are often bares spots or weak grass that grows sparsely due to inconsistent depth and often spores a higher level of weeds due to the inconsistent lay of the seed. For more successful growth with balanced thickness, a professional seeder provides a quick and easy method to achieving a healthy, thick lawn. 

For bare or thinning turf, Overseeding is the best way to thicken and build thickness in these areas. Professionals tend to dethatch and overseed at the same time, dethatching first to remove any matted thatch and then overseeding. Vertical slicing is a form of regular aeration that interjects hundreds of thin slices not the soil to promote water retention in the soil and enhances nutrient absorption. This allows for the best possible penetration of seed and root establishment.   

These multi-purpose units ease seeding and overseeding jobs with dethatching and vertical cutting capabilities to boot! Easy to use and designed to last, Classen Turf Seeders can easily be converted to a powered rake (dethatcher) or vertical cutter in minutes with easy to change blade reels.
