Thicken Your Lawn With Overseeding
If your yard is not looking as green and lush as it should be, it can affect the overall look and feel of your home's exterior. The landscape of your home can add to your home's curb appeal or take away from it. If your yard is looking patchy or brown, you may think that you have to rip out the yard and start from scratch. But fortunately, this is not the case. Overseeding can be done to help save your current lawn. Here is a bit more about this lawn service.
What is Overseeding?
Overseeding is the process of throwing lawn seeds over your existing lawn. This helps to fill in bare patches or patches where your grass is dying. Ripping out an entire yard can be costly and time-consuming. As long as a fungus is not causing your yard to die, overseeding is a great way to revive your existing yard.
What Problems Can Overseeding Correct?
Overseeding can solve a number of problems. First and foremost, overseeding can solve bare patches and spots in a yard. If your dog uses the bathroom in a specific area or your sprinklers are not hitting an area, that part of your yard may be dead. Overseeding fills in this area. Overseeding can also eliminate brown spots. Lush green grass can begin to grow thanks to the seeds that are spread out over the brown patches. Lastly, overseeding can help to prevent weed infestation. If your grass is thick, weeds have a much harder time thriving. Filling in bare spots and ensuring your lawn is tight can help to prevent weeds from growing and thriving.
When Can Overseeding Be Done?
Overseeding is best done when it is not too hot out and not too cold. As such, the best times of the year to overseed your yard are the spring and fall. If you overseed your grass in the fall, you are helping a dying lawn to survive a cold and harsh winter. If you overseed in the spring, you are working to ensure your yard is lush and green for the summer months. A lawn care service can take a look at your yard and take into account the climate where you live and help you determine what time of year is best for your overseeding service.
How Often Can Overseeding Be Done?
Overseeding should be done no more than one time a year. You want new seedlings to have the opportunity to establish a root system and thrive. If you overseed too frequently, the root systems may not be able to fully establish themselves before you seed over them. Properly maintaining your yard can help to reduce how frequently overseeding should be needed to maintain a full, green yard.
