Over Seeding: Enhance Your Lawn

Albany & Saratoga, NY Slit Seeding & Over Seeding | Grasshopper GardensOver seeding is a natural way to promote lawn health and growth for your home in Albany or Saratoga, NY. Grasshopper Gardens supports organic lawn maintenance wherever possible. Our seeding programs make use of premium quality grass seed to enhance lawn coverage and vibrancy. We believe that a healthy lawn begins with quality seed.

The over seeding process consists of:

  • Aeration before seeding to remove thatch and ensure nutrients, sunlight, air and water reach the seeds
  • Top Dressing the lawn with compost to supply essential nutrients for growth
  • Slit Seeding to apply the seeds to the lawn
  • Hydro-seeding for new lawns or to repair large sections

Over seeding is an effective way to promote healthy grass growth and thicken some thin areas of your lawn. An experienced lawn technician for Grasshopper Gardens can explain the benefits in detail as well as help you make the right choice.

Nutrient Rich Top Dressing with Compost to Nurture Your Lawn

Over time, your lawn is depleted of its essential nutrients. This causes your grass to weaken and become susceptible to temperature fluctuations and disease.  Top dressing with compost by Grasshopper Gardens puts back these important nutrients that your lawn needs to stay healthy and strong.

The benefits of top dressing with compost:

  • Improves soil quality and fertility therefore providing essential nutrients for the grass roots
  • Protects the soil and grass roots from extreme weather which reduces lawn stress
  • Improves and thickens grass growth which in turn discourages weeds
  • Enhances the water retention capacity of the soil
  • Acts as a natural fertilizer
  • Keeps thatch under control

Phone 518-793-9623 or email us at to request a quote or for more information about our high quality top dressing with compost.

“Best fall cleanup (or spring cleanup) ever. Not a leaf or pine needle left on my lawn or garden beds. Their work was impeccable. If I was here when they left, I would've tipped them.”
