Overseeding: What is it and why do I need to do it?

Does your lawn look like it needs a tall glass of water? Maybe the color isn’t vibrant or it seems to frequently boast dry patches of grass. If this sounds similar, your lawn may be in need of an overseeding treatment. Give your lawn thicker growth, healthier color, and greater resistance to disease and drought through overseeding services. 

So what is overseeding? 

Overseeding is the planting of grass seed directly into your existing lawn, without tearing up the current turf, or the soil. It’s an easy way to fill in bare spots, improve the thickness of your grass, establish a more diverse variety of grass growth, and enhance your lawn’s overall color. As grasses mature, thinning is normal—especially if you enjoy your lawn and use it often. Overseeding keeps your lawn competitive and steeped in youth and vigor, without starting over from scratch.

If a lawn looks old, or just unattractive, if it seems like it just never gets enough water, or if it is disease or insect prone, overseeding is the perfect solution to bring it back to life.

Many lawns that are existant from previous owners were established with common grasses not suited for the needs of today’s homeowner. Overseeding helps with this inevitable issue for many.

Overseeding newer turfgrass varieties into an older lawn can help it the original grass better withstand insects, disease, drought, shade, and heavy foot or vehicle traffic. The investment in overseeding pays off quickly by reducing the amount of fertilizer, water, pesticides, and seed required. Most importantly, a renovated lawn stays greener and looks thicker and healthier and it is much easier to keep looking like new!

Are you ready for a little landscaping professional secret? Because many homeowners don’t understand what overseeding is, they don’t know the value in how to utilize it. But it’s a best-kept secret among those in the landscaping profession. Overseeding keeps lawns looking great accompanied by a comprehensive and proactive management plan. Whether you’re tending your first lawn or have years of experience, learning how to overseed your lawn and when to get professional help will improve your results and give you the lush lawn of your dreams. Every neighbor on the block will wish their lawn looked as good as yours!
