The benefits of overseeding your lawn this fall
Over time, your natural grass lawn can begin to look dull because of factors like weather, wear, and disease. But proper maintenance, including overseeding, will help keep your lawn healthy and looking great! Overseeding is a quick, easy, and inexpensive way to transform your lawn back into the thick, lush, green grass you desire. The cool nights and shorter days in the fall provide the ideal conditions for seed germination, making it the perfect time to overseed your lawn. Here’s what you need to know about the benefits of overseeding, for a better-looking yard next year:
- Fill in bare spots
After a summer with lots of activity and traffic, hot weather, and pet damage, it’s normal to expect that your lawn will have some wear spots. But, you don’t need to spend a lot of time or money fixing up your grass to repair damaged areas. In fact, you can easily fill in bare spots on your lawn by overseeding, giving your yard a re-fresh without spending a ton of cash.
