Overseeding is a rejuvenating lawn treatment that can be applied in addition to a scarification or aeration. Not only does this service improve your lawn’s quality, it also repairs bare patches and makes the lawn hardier by increasing shade and drought tolerance, as well as resistance to disease.

What to expect from an overseeding treatment

Once your lawn manager has completed your scarification or aeration treatment, they can overseed your lawn using a machine that efficiently and evenly distributes the grass seed. Once this is done, your lawn will be left for a couple of weeks so that the new seeds will germinate, repairing damage and developing new grass growth.

Why is overseeding necessary?

The most common reason to carry out overseeding is to repair visible damage such as bare patches of earth caused by wildlife, mower damage or wear. Overseeding is also an important component of annual lawn care as it increases your lawn’s resistance to disease and reduces moss growth.

Lawns that are regularly reseeded become progressively thicker and more luscious. Numerous varieties of grass reproduce at a slower rate after several years; by adding new grass plants to the turf, overseeding increases your lawn’s virility.
