How to Use the Grass Starter in Stardew Valley?

It’s often said that the grass is greener on the other side. However, if you learn how to get and use the grass starter in Stardew Valley, it doesn’t have to be this way!

In this guide, we will go over the most crucial aspects of taking care of the grass in Stardew. How does the starter work? How do players get the recipe in the game?

Let’s take a look at everything you need to know about the grass started and how it can be beneficial in Stardew Valley.

What is the Stardew Grass Starter?

First things first, the grass starter is described in the game as “Place this on your farm to start a new patch of grass“.

This “crop” is used to get some new grass on your farm without too much additional work.

The season for it working properly is Spring, Summer, and Fall. That is because no grass can grow during the Stardew Winters!

You will need to wait a little bit, but once you place the grass starter on an empty farm tile, soon you will see plenty of new grass around you.

You can use if both for decorative reasons and for harvesting grass if that’s what you need to do in the game. For that you will need a scythe tool in Stardew Valley. If you’re wondering why you’d want to harvest grass, then it’s how you can get yourself some hay!

Just keep in mind that you will need a Silo for the hay. It can be used to feed various animals in Stardew Valley, so definitely consider working on your harvesting skills! In all fairness, hay has a selling price of 0 gold coins, so it’s only good for food.

How to Get this Recipe?

So, how can a player start making the Stardew Grass Starter recipe?

Just like with most recipes, you can buy this one at Pierre’s for a bit of gold. This time, the Grass Starter will cost you 1000 gold coins. Of course, this is an investment, so you might have to save up a little bit. If you just want to buy the starter, you can head over to the General Store and buy it for 100 gold coins.

Once you have the recipe, you will be able to “craft” this item for as many times as you need to create a beautiful lawn. This could be both decorative and useful for resources (if you need hay for the animals).

Stardew Valley Grass Starter Recipe

So, what is the mysterious Stardew recipe?

Well, all you need is 10 Fiber to make grass! Once you know this (and have the recipe) it will be extremely easy to make this without spending too much from your inventory.

Once you successfully finish the crafting process, you will get 1 Grass Starter.

What Are the Benefits of This Starter?

Why would players want to get the Stardew Grass Starter and keep on using it?

As mentioned above, you can use the grass in Stardew Valley to make additional resources or improve your landscape.

The good thing is that the grass will spread to nearby tiles once it grows from the starter, so you won’t need to plant grass in every empty tile you have on your farm.

Technically, you can also gift the Grass Starter to other characters in the game, but all of them will hate it! If you’re looking for better options, take a look at the Stardew Valley gifts guide!

Also, if you change your mind about growing grass from the starter, you can sell it for 50 gold coins. It’s not much, but it won’t take up the space in your chest or inventory, so it’s better than nothing!

Planting Stardew Grass

Did you know that you “can” plant the grass indoors? Well, sort of.

You can put it inside the farm building, but it will still be more beneficial when placed outside. This way, your animals can eat the grass, and your garden looks better. If you do end up planting grass inside, then you can still harvest it to get some hay!

Meaning, it all depends on what you need in the game!

Now you’re all ready to start growing grass in Stardew Valley and making your farm look much better!
