Overseeding Lawn in Fall: Explained

Lawns with thin turf coverage or bare spots won’t recover on their own. Overseeding a lawn in fall is the best time to correct this problem for the following spring and summer. The process involves spreading grass seed over your lawn to encourage new growth (as opposed to reseeding, which is ripping out a lawn and starting fresh). It’s a fairly inexpensive solution, especially when compared to new sod.

Why is fall the best time? Here are a few reasons:

  • The soil is still warm from the summer, but the air temperatures are cooler for emerging seedlings
  • There’s less active weed growth than in the spring, so seedlings don’t have to compete for space and nutrients
  • Roots will have time to grow enough to withstand winter

Aeration Lawn in Fall: Explained

Aeration works with overseeding lawns in the fall. As you can see in the above picture, aeration punches holes through your turf and into the soil. The process is an important aspect of lawn help, such as:

  • De-compresses our thick, clay soil, so water and nutrients can penetrate deeper to turf roots
  • Encourages turf roots to grow deeper and thicker, which improves health and drought-resistance. Roots will grow deeper within 8-10 weeks
  • Breaks up thatch, the layer of dead material that mats around the base of turf and can prevent water absorption and turf spread
