Lawn overseeding can bring the new life to your yard

Lawn overseeding is a horticultural technique used to improve the density and health of existing lawns. This process involves spreading new grass seeds directly over existing turf. The primary goal of overseeding is to fill in bare or thin spots, increase the turf’s thickness, and enhance the overall health and appearance of the lawn.

Overseeding is particularly beneficial for lawns that have become patchy due to heavy foot traffic, pest damage, or environmental stresses such as drought or shade. By introducing new grass seeds, overseeding promotes a thicker grass cover, which naturally suppresses weeds by limiting the space available for their growth. Additionally, this method can introduce new varieties of grass that are more resistant to disease, pests, and extreme weather conditions, further increasing the lawn’s resilience.

Moreover, overseeding has significant environmental benefits. A dense, healthy lawn can help prevent soil erosion, filter pollutants from rainwater, and cool the surrounding air, contributing to a healthier local ecosystem. This technique is an effective way to enhance both the functionality and aesthetic appeal of residential and public green spaces.
