Grass Seed

Dunteman Turf Farms is an industry leading grass seed supplier proudly servicing surrounding areas of Illinois including; Elburn, DeKalb, St. Charles, Geneva, Aurora, Naperville, Batavia, Elgin and Yorkville. The professionals at Dunteman Turf Farms ask that if you choose to use grass seed rather than sod, be wary of low-cost seed mixtures. They often contain common, unadapted and low-quality grasses. Improved seed varieties will generally cost a bit more, but within that seed lies the potential for an improved quality of lawn. As you look at our list of grass seed blends, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Does the majority of your lawn receive a lot of sun or is it heavily shaded?
  • Will you yard have a considerable amount of traffic?
  • How much TLC will give your new lawn?
  • How often will your fertilize and water?

Remember, it can take as long as two years to achieve the finished products that sod provides instantly.

Note to the customer:

Due to droughts and supply chain disruptions, there is a huge shortage in quality turf grass seed for this year. Because of this we have made necessary adjustments to our seed mixes. All of our seed this year will coated with Proseed Go ‘N’ Grow, which provides small amounts of nutrients to seedlings at the early stages of germination, allowing for faster and better emergence. This is a change from years past, as we have previously gone with 100 percent pure live seed. We believe this is the best option for anyone in the need of seed due to extreme shortages and the subsequent price increases.

We believe in both transparency and delivering a quality product to our customers. If you have any additional questions about our seed mixes please give our office a call.
