Area Rental’s seeders provide excellent seed coverage promoting greener and thicker grass. Using a seeder to plant grass seed can save you time, money and effort when planting new grass. A walk-behind broadcast spreader or slit seeder disperses seeds in an even pattern, avoiding patches of dense or sparse growth and eliminating the need to spread seeds by hand or with a rake
At Area Rental we carry two types of seeders: broadcast spreaders and slit seeders. Broadcast seed spreaders work by throwing seeds in a wide area when you push the seeder forward. These types of seeders are useful for planting new grass onto bare soil. They can also be used to disperse seeds over the top of existing grass in a process called “overseeding”.
Overseeding is easier and less expensive but has a higher chance of letting seeds go to waste before they can germinate. Slit seeders have steel blades that slice into the grass and soil, spreading seeds in the narrow spaces that are formed. Slice seeding gives you a better chance at germination, so more of your seeds will have a chance to grow.
