Depending on your circumstances, we offer 3 different methods of overseeding your lawn.  In all cases, we work with you to determine the best grass type and seed variety to meet your particular needs.  We emphasize to our prospective customers that OVERSEEDING IS A PARTNERSHIP.  We will absolutely do our part to make sure everything is done right on our end to ensure success.  However, the best preparation and seeding work is wasted if the newly seeded lawn does not receive the proper amount of moisture to ensure germination.    We will advise you on properly watering your new lawn, and yes, we will drive by and nag you if you fall behind.  But the end result will be a beautiful, thick lawn that you can be proud of.
   In all cases unless you have a really bare lawn in spring, we reccommend overseeding in the early fall (before the end of September).  This gives your new grass 2 full growing seasons (Fall and the following Spring) to get well established before facing Summer heat and drought.  Spring seedings are also subject to much more weed competition since newly seeded areas cannot be treated for weeds.

                                 CORE-AERATION WITH OVERSEEDING
  • Done to fill in lawns that are somewhat spotty or thin.
  • Extra core-aeration passes are made to maximize the seed bed.
  • The grass seed is then sowed into the lawn.
  • A high quality starter fertilizer is also applied to maximize germination.
  • Water, Water, Water!!!
         
    SLICE-SEEDING
  • For lawns with larger bare areas that need to be filled in.
  • Areas to be seeded are mowed extra short.
  • A machine called a slit-seeder is used to sow seed in closely spaced rows.
  • Perpendicular passes are made to eliminate "row" look of new grass.
  • A high quality starter fertilizer is applied.
  • Time for you to Water,Water,Water!!!

     

    TOTAL LAWN RENOVATION
  • A complete fresh start for lawns that are overrun with weeds and undesirable perrenial grasses.
  • A non-selective herbicide is used to eliminate grass and vegetation in area to be seeded.
  • After vegetation dies (about 7-10 days), dead grass is mowed extra short (to about 1").
  • A slice-seeder is used to sow the new grass seed directly into the old, dead lawn.
  • The old dead grass acts to hold the new seed in place and also as a mulch to hold much needed moisture in. There is no need for additional straw.
  • A high quality starter fertilizer is applied at time of seeding.
  • Since this is an entirely new lawn area, MUCH emphasis is placed on WATER,WATER,WATER!!!
