Lawn Overseeding Service

By spreading improved seed varieties, you are introducing new grass plants. New grass varieties can better withstand drought, disease and insect pressures which improve the quality of your lawn over time. By combining lawn aeration and overseeding, you are increasing the chance for seed to soil contact which will encourage germination.

Why do you need overseed your lawn?

Overseeing your lawn can help repair areas damaged due to drought, insects or diseases.  Often times, lawns may be damaged by environmental conditions or insect or disease pests and overseeding can provide an effective and reasonable cost solution.  Overseeding is also recommended as an annual maintenance service to help thicken your lawn and introduce newer, improved grass varieties into your lawn.

Benefits Of Overseeding Your Lawn

What are the benefits?

A healthier lawn: Re-seeding your lawn not only involves getting new grass to grow but it also crowds out places where weeds and crabgrass like to inhabit, like thin or bare areas. Seeding will fill in these areas with what you want, not what you’re trying to prevent!

Lawn seeding is often accomplished through a process called overseeding.  There are many benefits to overseeding your lawn that include: Repairing areas of a lawn that has been damaged by drought, disease, insects or other problems.  Introduce newer, more drought, insect and disease resistant grass varieties into your lawn. Thicken an older, thinning lawn by applying new seed varieties.  Improves the overall appearance of your lawn once the new seed germinates and grows.  So, overseeding is beneficial in several ways and ExperiGreen offers professional overseeding service along with a full, comprehensive lawn care program.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is overseeding?

Overseeding is the process of broadcasting grass seed over a lawn area or an entire lawn.  Overseeding is best done, coupled with core aeration in the fall, as temperatures cool down and moisture from fall rains is plentiful.  These are ideal conditions for root system growth and expansion.  At ExperiGreen, we offer Aeration & Overseeding services completed by trained experts using only quality, professional seed varieties suited for your local area and climate.

How long to water lawn after seeding

Proper watering after seeding a lawn is key to seeding or overseeding success.  It is important to keep the new seed moist. Watering daily is very important and if possible, watering 2 or 3 times per day for short periods of time is recommended. This will keep the seeds and seedlings moist, which is key and will enhance quick germination over the first few weeks and result in a thicker stand of grass over time.

How to prepare lawn for spring seeding?

Overseeding your grass or lawn is best done in the fall. Overseeding, coupled with core aeration in the fall, as temperatures cool down and mositure from fall rains is plentiful make for ideal germination conditions. Root system growth and expansion accelerates at this time of year. Unfortunately, sometimes you cannot wait for fall and spring seeding may be your only option. To prepare the lawn for spring seeding, be sure to mow the lawn shorter than normal. Any bare areas should be cultivated using a rake or other tool to create an open, loose seed bed so the new seed can germinate effectively. Often a lawn aeration machine is used to aerate the lawn, then seed is broadcast over the entire lawn.

When to fertilize lawn after seeding?

It is recommended that a lawn is fertilized soon after overseeding.  A special formulation of Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium, called “starter fertilizer” is the best fertilizer for overseeding. At ExperiGreen, we offer Aeration & Overseeding service and as part of our lawn program will apply a starter fertilizer after seeding.

When to mow lawn after seeding?

Mowing along with proper watering is key to a successful lawn overseeding.  Ideally the lawn was mowed a bit shorter right before seeding.  After the seeding, it is recommended that you wait at least a week before mowing so the seed can settle to the soil level and has a chance to germinate. As new grass begins to fill in, be sure to mow tall, at a height of at least three inches or higher. Mow frequently, taking off no more than one-third of the grass blade per mowing.
