Now is the time to seed your lawns. Over time, grass does get old and needs to be replaced. Worn-out lawns invite weeds. Reseeding is a fast, inexpensive way to help bring your lawn back to its lush, green, healthy self without tearing everything out and starting over.
Over Seeding an Existing Lawn:
- Mow lower than usual.
- Rake to thin the existing turf and clean out old dead grass.
- Aerate to reduce soil compaction.
- Amend with compost / add black earth to level.
- Add starter fertilizer.
- Apply seed.
- Rake in loosely.
- Top dress with peat moss and water in. Keep moist!
