Grass growth can slow down considerably in fall and the winter season. But once the winter begins to recede and the temperatures rise, the frost in the soil begins to thaw and you will notice new plant and grass growth in your landscape. If you want a lush and green lawn, it’s important to take full advantage of these favorable climatic conditions and provide your lawn some added attention and care to help it thrive.
While weed control and fertilization are vital aspects, it's also necessary to introduce new seeds in all the lawn spaces. We at Nature Bros Landscape Maintenance have been providing custom overseeding services to clients in and around Turner, Salem, and Keizer.
Why is overseeding so important?
Overseeding needs to be done every spring and in the fall; this helps introduce new growth and prevents brown/dry patches on your lawn. While fertilization helps young as well as mature, healthy grass grow better, reproduction eventually does slow down. Even the top quality soils won’t help aging grass thrive and you will begin to notice thinning grass and dry patches. One of the best ways to give your lawns a new lease of life is to get them overseeded at the right times of the year.
Custom Lawn Overseeding Solutions
Sometimes homeowners feel that they would be able to handle the task themselves, but turf overseeding is best left to professionals like us. There are a number of aspects we keep in view while carrying out this work:
- Inspect The Grass - This is the first step our experts carry out; they inspect your lawn to identify what type of grass is growing there. If you have cool-season turf, the seeding would have to be done during fall, and September is the best month for it. Warm-season grass overseeding has to be done during spring. We also choose the right types of seeds based on the grass species you have on your property.
- Aerating The Soil - We also check the soil for compaction; hard or excessively-compacted soil doesn’t provide the right growth environment for your grass to thrive. This is why we always recommend that the soil is aerated before the overseeding application.
- De-Weeding - If there are too many weeds in the grass at the time of overseeding, they will hamper the growth of the new grass. We will thoroughly de-weed all the lawn spaces before they are overseeded.
- Mowing and Dethatching - The lawn will also be mowed and de-thatched before the process. Thatch and overgrown grass prevent the seeds from coming in contact with the soil, germinating and taking root.
