Overseeding: Should I Overseed My Lawn?

By TruGreen October 1, 2017

Narrator:

Overseeding is a relatively simple concept. After all, you're really just spreading new grass seed on top of the existing lawn. In fact, people have been doing it for many years, but did you know that overseeding can dramatically improve your lawn's overall health, making it thicker, and more likely to fend off weeds? Why is overseeding your lawn sometimes necessary? Overseeding is especially helpful for thickening and improving lawns that were established with common types of turf grasses. Since many of these are prone to damage from diseases, insects, and drought. Not all grasses benefit from overseeding. In general, overseeding is most beneficial to cool-season grasses like Fescue, Ryegrass, and Kentucky Bluegrass, but certain warm-season grasses can also benefit from overseeding, especially during the winter months when they go dormant. If you aren't sure if overseeding is the right option for you, contact the trained professionals at TruGreen.
