As most grass plants age, their rate of natural reproduction slows or is non existent because we don’t let it go to seed. This often starts showing as a lawn that just isn’t as thick as it used to be, then progresses to unsightly bare spots. Overseeding is the practice of introducing new plants in the form of grass seed. At Twin Cities Turf Professionals, we select high quality seed mixes that include species and varieties that are best suited for your lawn’s particular micro climate. Although this can be done at almost anytime of the year, overseeding in the fall in conjunction with aeration provides the most predictable results.
Key Overseeding Points:
- Natural reproduction slows or is prevented by cultural practices
- Improve thin or bare spots in the turf
- Hand picked high quality seed mixes
- Best done in the fall
