Pearl’s Premium mixtures are especially blended to deliver unique performance characteristics, including:

  • Highly drought tolerant – Seldom or never water once established (in Northern Climate zones)
  • Very slow growing – Mow only once per month on average (more frequently in damp spring conditions)
  • Not chemical dependent – Thrives with less or no treatment (organic fertilizer recommended)
  • Extremely deep-rooted – 12 inch deep roots after one year tap into naturally occurring nutrients
  • Greener longer– Stays greener throughout winter / greens up quickly in spring


Pearl’s Premium mixtures are well suited to a wide variety of applications from deep shade to full sun, including:

  • Residential, multi-family/condo and commercial / municipal lawns, cemeteries and parklands (except high traffic areas)
  • Environmentally-sensitive areas (except areas that are continually wet)
  • Highways (medians, traffic circles, etc)
  • Golf courses (rough, driving range, clubhouse areas)


Pearl’s Premium mixtures are installed like other lawn seed varieties. Best practices for successful installation include:

  • Soil Testing – Ensure proper soil conditions with testing and amendments, as needed
  • Aeration – Loosen soil with mechanical aeration to promote root growth and healthy soil
  • Organic Fertilization – Spread organic lawn soil or organic compost
  • Application Rate– Apply 7-8 lbs per 1,000 sq ft (new lawn); apply 5-6 lbs per 1,000 sq ft (over-seeded lawns)
  • Watering– Daily for first 30 days(ensure seed stays moist); weekly during first summer in periods of drought or extreme heat
  • Over-seeding– Over-seed following season to ensure consistently thick coverage throughout lawn


Pearl’s Premium lawns require specific maintenance practices, including:

  • Watering – Once established, stop watering to promote deep root growth; water as needed during first hot summer
  • Mowing – Cut high (at least 3”) with a sharp blade to protect grass health and reduce weeds
  • Mulching – Use a mulching mower and leave clippings
  • Treating – Top-dress with ¼” of organic compost each year or spread organic fertilizer in spring & fall
  • Aeration – Aerate lawn each year
