What is overseeding?
Overseeding is a way to have a thicker more drought resistant lawn. Overseeding is the process of planting new grass seed over your existing lawn. The perfect time to do this is in the fall right after your lawn has been aerated. At Red Carpet Turf we use a custom blend of quality seed to keep the lawn thick and healthy
What are the benefits of overseeding your lawn?
Overseeding is one of the best steps you can take to improve the health and appearance of your lawn. Some of the benefits of overseeding include:
- Improves lawn appearance
- Thicker and healthier grass
- Improves weed resistance
- Improves drought tolerance
- Increases insect resistance
- Improves lawn color
Yes, overseeding a lawn is something that a homeowner can do, but it’s not all fun and games. It entails buying or renting an aerating machine or slit seeder, researching and purchasing the right blend of grass species to use, stocking up on starter fertilizer, and doing the procedure at the right time of the year and under optimal conditions.
In most cases and for best results, the wiser choice when it comes to overseeding is to contact a Red Carpet certified specialist.
