Lawn Maintenance:

The Importance of Autumn Overseeding

Jonathan Green Black Beauty Ultra

If you love your lawn (which we are sure you do), then you realize and comprehend the importance of lawn care and that it goes beyond watering and mowing. Yes, these two are the foundation for a healthy lawn, but proper lawn maintenance is a more involved science, involving criteria inclusive of seeding, aeration, fertilization and controlling insects and weeds. Over-seeding is the process of planting grass seeds into your existing turf, without devastating the soil.

In our area, early fall is the best time to over-seed — typically between Sept. 1 and Oct. 15. That’s because soil temperatures are still warm, which is necessary for optimum seed germination, and cooler air temperatures are better for grass growth. There are also fewer weeds for the grass to compete with at this time of the year. From a professional point of view, it is one of the best ways to improve your grass’s color, fill in bare spots, and improve your turf’s overall health. After high summer temperatures, foot traffic, and lawn diseases, your yard may look worn out. Over-seeding is also the best way to incorporate improved turf types into your lawn.
