Seeding for the Fall
Fall is the perfect time of year to seed and fertilize your new lawn. With cooling temperatures and frequent dew it allows roots to grow deeper into the soil. The still occurring warm days helps the seed germinate. The combination of the two can assist your lawn growing 49% thicker when spring rolls around. By fertilizing early fall, roots have time to store up proper nutrients to get them through harsh winters. Best rule of thumb is to seed and fertilize around Labor Day, then again around Thanksgiving.
Even if your current lawn seems to be growing fine, over seeding in the fall is a great choice to make the grass new and fresh for the following year. Now there are newer grass seeds that can withstand drought, insect damage and disease, consider it a lawn reinforcement. The best practice is to do proper aeration throughout and use holes as seed bed in desired areas of growth. Last but not least over seeding with high performance grass seed can prevent pesky weeds from popping up all over your lawn the following summer.
