    WHAT IS OVERSEEDING

    Overseeding is the planting of grass seed directly into existing turf, without tearing up the turf, or the soil. Overseeding is typically in conjunction with Core Aeration. As a result, this boosts the germination rate immensely. It’s an easy way to fill in bare spots, improve the density of turf, establish improved grass varieties and enhance your lawn’s color.

    Furthermore, if a lawn looks old, or just “worn out,” if it needs growing amounts of water and fertilizer to thrive, or is disease or insect prone, it’s a perfect candidate for overseeding.

    THE BENEFITS OF OVERSEEDING

    Many older lawns were established with common type turf grasses not suited for the needs of today’s homeowner. They’re often more disease and insect prone, requiring more fertilizer and water.

    Overseeding newer turfgrass varieties into an older lawn can help it better withstand insects, disease, drought, shady conditions and heavy traffic. The investment in overseeding pays off by reducing the amount of fertilizer, water and pesticides required. Most importantly, a renovated lawn stays greener and looks thicker and healthier!

    WHEN TO OVERSEED

    The best times are generally in either early fall or early spring.  All lawns can benefit from yearly overseeding to help thicken its current density, whether bare, spotty, patchy or even already plush and full.
