As summer comes to an end, leaves start falling as the cool air moves in, making it a perfect time for fall overseeding. Throughout the summer, your lawn is damaged by heat droubts, diseases, insects and foot traffic. This is your chance to give your lawn the care it needs before the snow starts falling.
When to do fall overseeding
The ideal time to overseed is when the tempature is between 60 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit, giving your lawn time to fully germinate, giving the seedings time to fully mature to the point where they can make it through the winter and contine to grow again when spring arrives. So when you're thinking about overseeding, its important to pay attention to the tempature instead of the calender!
Fall Aeration and overseeding
Fall overseeding is usually combined with lawn aeration because germination depends on seed-to-soil contact. Lawn aeration is when a machine pulls the cores of the soil from the lawn so that air, nutrients and water have better access to turgrass roots. Its important to note that applying seed to your lawn correctly, either with a rotary or a drop speader, is necessary to make sure its blends evenly and maximizes the growth to match with your exsisting grass.
