Overseeding is an essential part of any lawn care routine. This process involves spreading grass seed onto an existing lawn. When done properly, overseeding helps to thicken and strengthen the lawn, making it more resistant to drought, disease, insects, and weeds. As such, overseeding benefits all kinds of lawns as it thickens sparse lawns and prevents healthy lawns from thinning.
In order for a seed to germinate, it must have good seed to soil contact. To achieve this, our lawn care professionals utilize a process called slice seeding to plant seeds directly into the soil. The spinning blades on our slice seeder create small grooves in the soil and plant seeds directly into the ground. This process allows the seed to retain moisture and germinate quickly without the risk of drying out. Plus, slice seeding eliminates the need for using a cover crop like straw and reduces the need for watering.
Because of the clay-type soil we have here in the Miami Valley, overseeding may not be enough to keep your lawn strong and healthy. High traffic areas are prone to compaction, which makes it difficult for water, air, and nutrients to penetrate the soil, thereby impeding turf growth. If your lawn is heavily compacted, we recommend aerating your lawn prior to seeding. Our core aerator removes small plugs throughout the yard to loosen the soil and allow essential nutrients, moisture, and air to penetrate the soil. This, in turn, creates stronger, more resilient turf with deep, healthy roots.
