What is Overseeding?
Overseeding is the process of adding new seed directly to your existing turf. This process will help with drought resistance and density. We highly recommend that you pair Overseeding with Core Aeration. Post aeration is the optimal time to encourage new growth in your lawn.
Why does my lawn need overseeding?
Using your yard is tough on it, combined with heat of the summer it may take a beating. Bi-annual overseeding will introduce new variations of seed that are more drought, disease and insect resistant. If your lawn was sodded originally you will need to introduce seed that is right for your individual yard. Your sod was grown in perfect soil, with fertilizers that are illegal for you and I to use, and zero shade. While it was beautiful and dense when it was installed you will need to overseed to ensure it stays that way!
