When planting grass seed on your lawn, it may be tempting to invest in what’s called “bird-resistant seed.” This type of grass seed has a special coating that tastes bitter to birds who eat it. Unfortunately, even bitter seed can still be food for birds, and too much can be toxic and lethal for them. Instead of coated seed, simply do this: Add a bit more grass seed to your spreader, be sure to cover it with enough soil and soak it well with water. These extra steps should be enough to guarantee a lush, green lawn.
