Fall is a great time to overseed to create a beautiful lawn for the spring.
WHAT IS OVERSEEDING?
Over time and with normal use, lawns can become thin and develop bare spots. “Overseeding” is a term used to describe the process of adding more seed to the existing turf to fill in these thin areas. 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. If a lawn looks old and “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!
BENEFITS OF OVERSEEDING
Many older lawns were established with common turf not suited for the needs of today’s homeowner. They’re often more disease and insect prone, requiring more fertilizer and water. Overseeding newer turf varieties into an older lawn can help it better handle insects, disease, drought conditions, shady conditions and high traffic areas. The investment in overseeding pays off by reducing the amount of fertilizer, water and pesticides required during maintenance. Most importantly, a renovated lawn stays greener and looks healthier.
