Overseeding a lawn can help improve its overall health and appearance.
Simply explained, lawn overseeding is a process of spreading grass seed over the already existing turf. Generally, overseeding is best for larger areas where the turf is thin, but not bare. Smaller areas that are thin or infested with weeds can be spot seeded.
The benefits of overseeding a lawn include:
• Filling in areas of turf damaged by summer stress, diseases or insects
• Thickening and increasing the density of thin lawns
• Improving the lawn’s appearance
• Enhancing the lawn’s ability to fight insects and diseases
Lawn overseeding is good for lawns that suffer from drought stress, insect or disease damage, or that show other evidences of decline, such as bare patches. Overseeding a
lawn with newer, improved types of turfgrass is often the best way to thicken the lawn
and improve its health and appearance. The new turfgrass is better able to resist damage from drought, turfgrass diseases and lawn damaging insects.
Lawn overseeding can be effective by itself, but it is often combined with lawn aeration.
After a lawn aerator pulls cores of soil from the lawn, the seed is then applied using a rotary or drop seeder. For even coverage, the seed is divided into equal lots and each lot is spread
in different directions.
There’s a good reason for combining overseeding with aeration. The holes created by the aeration process allow good seed-to-soil contact. This adds seed germination. Once the
seed germinates, the seedlings must be kept moist with light frequent watering until they
In general, lawn overseeding is most beneficial to cool-season grasses like fescue,
ryegrass and Kentucky bluegrass. But certain types of warm-season grasses can benefit
from overseeding, too, especially in the winter when they go dormant.
If your lawn is healthy, you’ll be able to enjoy it—and to keep your lawn healthy, lawn aeration at the right time of year is key. Lawn aeration is a facelift for your yard, an antidote
to soil compaction and nutrient absorption problems.
The aeration process yields big results. Your PhD-certified lawn care specialist will use a mechanical device designed to pull up evenly spaced, tiny plugs, each composed of turf, thatch and underlying soil. Over a couple of weeks, those plugs break down and feed nutrients back into the lawn. Water can seep deeper into your yard more quickly, encouraging deep root systems.
Keeping Thatch Under Control
Lawn aeration can minimize thatch, that layer of organic matter that can build up between your grass’s green leaves and the soil surface. A little thatch can be healthy, but if it gets to be more than half an inch thick, it can create a safe haven for diseases, insects, molds and other stressors while limiting your grass’s root system. Lawn aeration pulls some of that thatch to the surface where it can biodegrade, turning a potential lawn hazard into natural plant food.
Spring & Fall Applications
In the spring, aeration opens up pathways for nutrients and life-giving water, straight to new roots and shoots. If you have thin or bare patches in your yard, aeration can also provide a chance to overseed, allowing new seed to fall deeper into the turf and gain solid purchase. Some grass species will need to be overseeded in the fall instead of spring, so consult a Froio's lawn care specialist to make sure you’re using the proper techniques for your particular yard.
In the fall, aeration can let in light and air, keeping the dangers of mold under control and even minimizing the chances of winter lawn threats like snow mold. Proper fall fertilization in conjunction with aeration can allow those nutrients to reach the roots of your turf, providing a healthy control to the chances of snow mold growth.
