Overseeding is the practice of putting down seed and fresh soil over areas of existing grass to make your property’s grass grow stronger, thicker and fuller. It helps fill in bald spots and areas that need extra attention.
The time to overseed in the Northeast is now –mid-August to mid-September.
At this time the ground is still warm, which will cause the seeds to germinate quicker. As the air cools in September, the young grass will thrive; having several months to grow strong before freezing temperatures arrive.
Overseeding a lawn is the easiest way to maintain the lush look of your landscaping. At Autumn Hill, we carefully aerate your lawn before overseeding to allow nutrients and grass seed to fully penetrate the soil. By doing this, we give your grass a head start for the spring.
