Overseeding Siloam Springs
Overseeding is a straightforward process that gets the most from your seed and labor. Overseeding Siloam Springs keeps your lawn competitive and steeped in youth and vigor, without starting over from scratch. You can help reinvigorate your lawn by overseeding.
Following are the steps for overseeding
1: Prepare the area by removing any dead pieces of sod/grass and any other debris.
2: Add topsoil and level the area to match the existing sod.
3: Spread grass seed. If available, use a seed spreader to spread the grass seeds. If not available, apply approximately 15-20 seeds per square inch by slowly releasing from your hand. Spread as evenly as possible.
4: Tamp down slightly using a gardening tool.
5: Keep the repaired area moist until the seed starts growing.
It is also recommended to overseed your lawn at the same time that aeration is performed. Overseeding is an important service for lawns because it helps maintain a thick lawn and revive the bare spots. When overseeding is performed at the same time as aeration, the seeds have a greater chance of germinating and growing because of increased contact with the soil.
We also offer high nutrients soil dressing. A soil with more nutrients increases the chances of germinated grass seeds.
