Guide to Overseeding
Actually, overseeding is a way to fill in bare spots, improve the density of your lawn, and enhance your lawn’s color. It’s the secret to achieving the beautiful lawn you’ve been wanting.
Maybe you’ve been eyeing the neighbor’s luscious lawn and wondering just how they managed that. It was probably overseeding.
If your lawn looks old, if it needs an increasing amount of water and fertilizer, or if it’s disease and insect prone, it’s the perfect candidate for overseeding.
The Benefits of Overseeding
Plus, a renovated, overseeded lawn stays greener longer and looks thicker and healthier.
When is the Best Time to Overseed?
With adequate moisture, fertilizer, and sunlight, your new seedlings will be established before cooler fall weather sets in. Also, weeds are less of a factor during late summer and early fall, which gives your grass seedlings a better environment to develop and flourish.
Proper watering is critical to make your overseeding efforts a success:
- Immediately after overseeding, water heavily to wash grass seeds into slits.
- For the first 10-14 days – or until the grass seeds germinate – water lightly on a daily basis, soaking the first inch of soil.
- After germination, water less frequently, but allow for deeper soaking and penetration into the soil. This will encourage deeper root growth.
- After your grass is established, water at the recommended level for the type of grass planted.
