When we are caring for your lawn, one technique that we use is overseeding. It is part of a regular maintenance plan that we have been using for years, but to many, it may be all new. Overseeding is a process that improves the quality of your lawn and the lushness of your grass.

It keeps your lawn looking healthy, lush, and weed free. We use this proven technique to fill in the lawn and give it a thicker healthier look. It can be performed in the early fall or late spring. As the season passes you will notice the benefits right before your eyes and below your feet.
There are many benefits of overseeding but understanding the process is key. The practice of the technique is simple We provide a spreading of grass seed over the entire lawn where the grass is growing or not. The technique is so proven to work as many golf courses have been using this process for many years. It actually started as a process to maintain the turf and its quality when the sport started gaining popularity, but it though the process is simple, knowing who it is able to perform the technique correctly is the key to using it to build a thick and lush lawn.
Not all types of grass work well with overseeding. The technique primarily works well for grasses that grow well in the cooler seasons. This is usually fine fescue, tall fescue, perennial and annual ryegrass along with sometimes bluegrass. There are exceptions to all the rules with home lawns, because of the different types that may be growing, but generally overseeding is a process that works very well. If used on warm types of grass it can cause damage or spread diseases, but if the process of the technique is used in the cool season it can work well too.
One of the best reasons that overseeding benefits the grass type that grows better in the cooler seasons is because this type of grass grows in bunches. Just as it sounds the grass actually grows in a bunch. This growing type has been misunderstood for a long time, but when it germinates a single blade emerges. Then at the crown, the center of the grass root the other blades start growing from there making the bunch. As it expands the new grass blades develop and grow from the side of the crown creating a new bunch, without even having to root. This type of grass does have a shorter full span but continually is growing so you never even notice.
The technique of overseeding is a necessary process and a technique that we use to ensure that your lawn stays looking just the way that it should. As your lawn matures over time the reproduction rate greatly slows down. Each cycle of a blade of grass is already short at six weeks so when you slow down the reproduction process you really start to notice a thinning lawn quickly. Overseeding introduces a whole new start of the cycle to the lawn without tilling or removing the old grass. So the best way to keep that lawn green and lush is overseeding. It is a practice that when performed correctly can keep that grass growing and looking young forever.
The method that we use to overseed is not fancy and does not require expensive equipment, but does require the knowledge and know how. We have the knowledge and experience to know when to perform the overseeding, what type of grass to use, and when to do. This along with the right technique makes the difference whether the process is successful or not. Our process and skills set us aside from other lawn care companies.
