We suggest over-seeding or slit-seeding a lawn if it is thin or fatigued after years of use, thin from drought damage, or after fungus and / or insect damage has occurred, or if it needs some help coming back from a tough year to prepare for the next. We only use premium high quality seed with the right mixture for shady and sunny areas. This seed is more resistant to insects, disease, acidic soil, and other common problems than the grass seed of yesterday. The best time is in the fall when soil temperatures stay warm and air temperatures and rain are more favorable for germination.
- Over-seeding—This is usually done after core aeration or raking and followed with a starter fertilizer. It will thicken and strengthen your existing lawn by giving it diversity to fill in where your existing lawn is having problems.
- Slit-seeding—We use a machine that slits the ground with blades while simultaneously dropping the seed into the slits. Planting the seed at exactly the right depth gives a very high rate of germination. Please note—slit-seeding is not suitable for all areas.
