Overseeding

Everyone wants a thick and healthy lawn. Overseeding is the practice of adding new grass seed into a lawn.  Overseeding introduces new endophyte-enhanced grass species that require less water, less fertilizer, resist insects, disease pressures, and discourage weed infestations.

Overseeding is recommended annually for every lawn, even the best conditioned.

For lawns that are thin, weak, and have minor areas of concern, overseeding works wonders. New grass seed assists in thickening up these areas before they continue to worsen and problems arise, and continually adding new grass seed replaces older, tired grass to keep it healthy and robust.

Spring and Fall are usually the best times to plant grass seed, since soil and air temperatures are warm and natural rainfall is common. These beneficial growing conditions help ensure optimal seed germination and make establishment much more successful.

The most important rule to follow when establishing new grass seed is this: “if the seed dries, it dies.” Water is essential, and without it the seed cannot germinate. Maintaining a light frequent watering schedule multiple times a day until the grass fully establishes is vital to ensure the seed stays moist and doesn’t dry out.

Depending on the grass species, it can take weeks or months to fully establish new seedlings. Special aftercare and mowing practices are required during establishment, since new seedlings are tender and can be easily damaged if mowing frequency and mowing height are not adjusted. It's recommended to wait 4 – 6 weeks after full germination until regular mowing practices are adopted.

Combining a core aeration service with overseeding is an excellent way to achieve optimal performance by maximizing the benefits both services have to offer at once.
