Spring and fall are great times to over seed your grass. Over seeding involves casting seed out in weak spots in your grass, and aerating over it to push the seeds down into the turf and soil. There are over seeding machines, but I have used the process described for several years with great success. Over seeding is a great way to strengthen weak spots, or recover after bill bug damage, before those weak grass spots become strong weed spots. Over seeding is also a great way to introduce newer, better grass varieties in your yard that are more suited to our climate, and require less water. Wait to over seed until temperatures get into the 70's for better germination. You'll want to keep seeded areas moist for 2 or 3 weeks until you see grass sprouts getting established, at which point, return to your normal watering schedule. Existing grass will help insulate and protect new seedlings, but tread lightly while you mow the existing grass. If you see week spots in your grass, we would be happy to give you a free over seeding estimate.
