Overseeding is generally an overlooked landscaping maintenance and renovation service. Overseeding is critical at least once every four years, but is highly recommended each and every year. Overseeding is as simple as it sounds, yet it can be the difference between a thin, weed infested lawn and a vibrant lawn. Grass needs to be revitalized every few years as it grows old and tired, slowing down in reproduction. Overseeding keeps grass dense and weed free.
Overseeding every year ensures a thick and dense lawn. A thick lawn keeps weeds out and increases disease resistance When B & B Maintenance overseeds, we use the best seed varieties to increase the maximum potential of your lawn. We use special pest and disease resistant grass varieties that are ideal to strive in the Suffolk County climate. You can enjoy a fresh vibrant lawn by overseeding frequently.
Benefits of Overseeding:
-Fill in bare spots.
-Improve the density and color of turf.
-Establish improved grass varieties.
- Help the lawn withstand insects, disease, drought, shady conditions and heavy traffic.
-Reduce the amount of fertilizer, water and pesticides required.
We strive to provide a dense lawn of Sod quality through our overseeding service. Overseeding is effective in either the early spring or fall, but we recommend overseeding in Early September.
When we overseed, we prepare your existing lawn by mowing it less than 2", de-thatching and finally core aerating. This provides good soil-to-seed contact and maximizes the germination rate of the seed to be sowed. Top dressing with a topsoil/compost blend is also available and provides organic matter into the lawn which will improve soil structure and the strength of the new grass blades. A starter fertilizer is also added when overseeding to give the seeds a boost in germination and to supply them with proper nutrients for ideal growth.
Overseeding is a simple, yet important part of any effective lawn care program. At B & B Maintenance, we will provide you with the perfect seed blend to achieve sod quality results that you are looking for. You lawn will be healthier and aesthetically pleasing to both you and your home.
