If your lawn is looking thin and worn, overseeding can help you get the thick, lush, green lawn you’ve always wanted.
Overseeding is basically spreading grass seed over your existing lawn. This allows you to thicken up the thin areas, and your lawn will start to look terrific again.
Now is the best time to overseed your lawn in New Jersey. The soil is still warm but the air is cool, and there are fewer weeds for grass seeds to compete against.
Over time, grass gets old and needs to be replaced. Worn-out lawns invite weeds. Overseeding is a fast, inexpensive way to help bring your lawn back to its lush, green self without tearing everything out and starting over.
Mow Low & Rake
Prepare your thin lawn by cutting it shorter than usual and bagging the clippings before overseeding. Rake the lawn after mowing to loosen the top layer of soil and remove dead grass and debris. As a result, the grass seed will be able to gain easier access to soil after germinating.
Prepare the Soil
In order for the seed to take, it’s a good idea to rake in a thin layer of enriched soil over your lawn to help the seed settle in. Don’t put so much down that you kill your existing grass; less than a quarter of an inch is plenty.
Rent your Overseeder
Once you rent your overseeder, fill it up, adjust the setting according to the label directions, and apply.
Don’t forget to Feed and Water!
To give your new grass seedlings the essential nutrients they need for fast growth, apply fertilizer after you’ve spread the grass seed. Once you have planted your seeds & fertilized, be sure to water lightly once or twice a day until the seedlings are as tall as the rest of your lawn.
Overseeding is a fast, inexpensive way to help bring your lawn back to its lush, green self without tearing everything out and starting over.
