Custom Grass Seed Mixture

One of our strong suits here at Northampton County Seed is the ability to custom blend grass seed mixes. We do this both for our wholesale and retail customers. We have two seed blenders that can mix the seed for us. We have a small seed mixture that can blend up to 500 lbs of seed in one blend. We have a bigger seed mixer that can blend one ton of seed at a time.

Here we are highlighting some of our preferred Spring items.

We all want a beautiful lawn. How to get a beautiful lawn takes work and knowledge. Everyone has the ability to properly care for their lawn. The key is the knowledge to know what product to apply at the proper time of the year. This is why we have the lawn care secrets. They are not really secrets. It is just our 60 years of lawn seed and lawn experience written down in an easy to understand format that you the homeowner, landscaper, lawn care operator can follow. You have the ability to create a better lawn. We just are giving you the knowledge to do so. ​

Welcome back to the good old days of customer service!

People call us all the time asking, "What do you handle? The better question could be asked "What do we not handle?" This section will guide you as to what we sell in the way of turf and non- turf items. Most of our products are lawn related or farm related items. Since we are open during the winter months to keep us busy we also sell rock salt and wood pellets. Look at our product list. If there are other items that we do not stock we will see if we can supply the product for you.

Northampton County Seed Company is not a place where a time machine exists. We cannot return you to the days of The Lone Ranger, Dick Clark, Captain Kangaroo or Lassie. (Yes, we are dating ourselves!) If you want to come to a business where the customer comes first, where your concerns and questions are respectfully listened to and to receive honest answers to those questions, we are the seed business to come to.

In addition, hiring a professional also means you’ll receive high-quality, professional-grade seed. This is important as the stuff that you can buy at a big box store is often mixed with a lot of filler, weed seeds, and other undesirable grass species. Putting down low-quality seed can be like shooting yourself in the foot as you can wind up with a lot of weeds mixed in with your grass. Plus, it may not perform as well as you hope. Premium seed will germinate at a higher rate than most seed mixes you’ll find on your own. Would you rather buy a 20 lb bag that is rated at 80% germination or 90%? You will get more seeds to grow when you use higher quality seed.

Lawn seeding is not as simple as just tossing some seed down on a bare spot (though we find that’s what most people think it is). Lawn seeding will be most successful when the conditions are right. Good seeding results requires loosened soil so that the seedlings can root in. That’s why it’s best to have a lawn overseeding service performed immediately following aeration in the fall.

While seeding seems like a simple enough task, there are definitely benefits to having it done by a professional rather than doing it on your own. Let’s explore some seeding facts that you might not know as well as why you should consider a professional lawn seeding service for your Allentown, Bethlehem, or Easton, PA home.

Lawn Seeding Tips

It’s a misconception that seeding is a service only needed by lawns in total disrepair. The truth is that even healthy lawns will benefit from a lawn seeding service . Seeding can help improve your lawn’s overall health as well as boost its aesthetic appeal.

During an on-site evaluation, we can assess your lawn and determine what grass type is ideal for the growing conditions present. We’ll also develop a lawn care plan to get your lawn in the best possible shape—and keep it that way. With professional aeration and overseeding, we can help get you the healthy, green lawn you’ve always wanted.

If you truly want the best for your lawn, we suggest you consider professional help. Here at Joshua Tree, we can provide our clients with the best possible experience in order to give them the best possible results. Having an expert eye on your property can make a huge difference in the success of your lawn.

The fall is also the best time, temperature-wise for seeding. The soil is still warm but the air is cool, providing ideal growing conditions for your new seedlings to germinate. Successful seeding also requires moisture, sunlight, nutrients, and good quality seed.
