Why Is Seeding Important to your lawn?

If your lawn is in poor shape, you may think that you need to pull up everything and start over. However, there is another option that can help save your lawn called “overseeding.” Overseeding is when grass seeds are placed on top of the grass instead of digging and planting the seeds that way. If your lawn is not in the best shape, overseeding can be a way to salvage your lawn and breathe new life into it.

Overseeding is beneficial in a number of ways. Overseeding can be helpful if your lawn suffers from one or more of the following issues:

Lawn Problems

  • Soil compaction from heavy use
  • Shaded area
  • Lack of water (drought)
  • Grass type not meant for the environment
  • Fill in bare or damaged areas

Overseeding Benefits

Sometimes overseeding can breathe new life into an aged lawn. It can produce thicker grass and a lawn to be proud of, and it create thatch that is so dense that it is able to choke out weeds and prevent lawn disease.
