Many lawns require periodic seeding to fill in thin or bare areas of turf. These thin areas can result from drought stress, insect infestation, or even construction work in your lawn. Unfortunately, simply dropping seed on the ground is not usually sufficient. Seed to soil contact is very important for successful seeding.
Fall is the best time to seed your lawn, with spring being the second best season for seeding. We recommend core aeration prior to seeding. This ensures that the seed comes in contact with the soil and actually falls into the newly formed holes created by aerating.
Remember, the success of new seeding depends greatly upon the amount of water and care it receives. Be sure to provide frequent, light irrigation until the seeds germinate and begin to grow. Then, provide less frequent, deep watering to help your new grass become well established.
If your lawn has large bare or thin areas, it may call for extensive renovation for best results. Our professional technicians can advise the best remedy for these situations after inspecting your lawn.
