Have you heard of adding sugar to grass seed?

Why would I want to do this?


Answer by  roots3003 (28)

Adding sugar to grass seed will help it germinate quicker. It will help the grass retain water, and also encourage microorganisms to accumulate around the seed, resulting in helathier growth.

Yes, I have heard of adding sugar to grass seed. Because sugar absorbs so much water, the sugar-grass seed combination will stay moist throughout the growing process and allow the seeds to take root. Combining sugar and grass seed, surprisingly, may actually significantly improve your chances of growing grass in your yard.

Actually there is some merit to adding sugar to grass seed. It helps the seed to retain the moisture that it needs.

Yes, it will help enrich the soil. It will also get the seed to settle in the soil to grow grass.
