Overseeding your lawn is the practice of spreading grass seed over an existing lawn. As time goes on grass begins to thin, especially in areas that get a lot of use. One of the benefits of overseeding your lawn is that it helps to keep a beautifully lush green lawn well into the growing season. It’s a straightforward process but timing is everything. This process usually takes a couple treatments in both the spring and fall. The team at Grasshopper Gardens can help establish a plan so you begin to see the benefits of overseeding your first season. Here are some reasons you should contact Grasshopper Gardens about overseeding your lawn today!
Overseeding Reduces Erosion
Grass has a compact root system that does an exceptional job of binding to the soil. Densely planted or overseeded lawns help to ensure soil and water stay where you want them to, right at the root zone, reducing run-off and soil loss. Reducing soil erosion helps to keep necessary nutrients throughout your lawn and in the soil that helps your lawn to thrive. An overseeded dense lawn also holds on to moisture and reduces the amount of water your lawn needs to thrive.
Overseeding Reduces Pest Invasion
