Regrow your patchy lawn and restore dead brown spots in your yard with overseeding. Overseeding revives plants damaged by summer heat, heavy foot traffic, and other wear and tear. Here's what our landscape professionals have to say about overseeding your lawn.
Overseeding is when you spread grass seed over your existing lawn. Because it's customary to mow grass before it reaches the seeding part of it's lifecycle, we have to add additional seed ourselves in order to replenish worn and thinning spots.
In northern climates, spring and fall give the right conditions for overseeding. We prefer overseeding in the fall because weeds have finished their life cycle, but the soil and air conditions are still optimal growing conditions for grass.
The best time is the first two weeks of September. In general, the 15th of September is your last chance for getting seeds on the ground. This gives you about six weeks where you can count on the temperature to cooperate.
While it may seem daunting at first, overseeding is a project that anyone can tackle with a bit of research and planning. If you take the time to to do it right, you will be rewarded with a thicker, greener yard. And that's worth celebrating.
