Aerating & Overseeding
All cool season grass should be overseeded each fall to keep it thick and lush. Unlike warm season grass, fescue, rye and bluegrass don’t spread. Seeding it each fall will insure that your shade grass stays nice and thick.
The majority of areas that we service are in a “transitional zone,” which means that it’s really too hot for the shade grass. It will look nice in the spring, but when the heat of summer hits it, some of it will die back, which makes fall overseeding that much more important.
Our overseeding is done in mid to late September or early October. Shade grass’ growing season begins in the fall. Seeding in the spring is discouraged because the new grass won’t have enough time to develop a good root system before the heat of the summer, and you will lose a lot of it. Also, if you seed in the spring, you will be unable to apply pre-emergents to those areas and may have a weed problem.
Currently, we offer Fall Aeration and Overseeding.
We will select the best type of seed for your area, aerate your shade areas, and seed those areas.
