Lawn Care Services: Over-Seeding

After core aerating your lawn, it is beneficial to over-seed it with desirable blends of turfgrass...

Over-seeding is done by adding of grass seeds directly into existing turf. It is an easy way to fill in bare spots, improve the color and density of the turf and make it less susceptible to diseases by adding a variety of hardy grass types based upon the site conditions. Many varieties of superior grass seeds have been developed to resist certain pest infestations. An appropriate blending of the right grass specie based upon the site conditions will ensure the best growing and turf conditions.


Over-seeding may appear to be a simple task, but there is a science to it as well. Some factors that should be considered when over-seeding includes the type of turfgrass seeds that should be used, how much to use, when is the best time to over-seed, and steps that can be taken to help the seeds germinate and become healthy grass plants. Talk to your Almstead lawn care professional about the best options for your landscape.
