Overseeding Your Lawn

Details

MASSACHUSETTS

From Mahoney’s Garden Centers. Kristina, one of Mahoney’s lawn-care specialists, talks about over-seeding your lawn, an important part of every traditional or organic lawn care plan. Does your lawn have thin, bare spots? Do you see patches with weeds and crabgrass? Is your lawn looking tired and drab? The cure can be as easy as over-seeding.

Over-seeding simply means adding more grass plants to your existing lawn. Over-seeding is not hard to do… it doesn’t take a lot of equipment…and it’s not expensive. But it can help you get a lawn that makes your neighbors green with envy.

GGVideos Editor Note:  Excellent information, with one caveat: recommending watering new seed 2-3 times a day for the first few weeks seems excessive.  Also, recommending giving new grass seed “lots and lots of water,” which could lead viewers to drown the seed by overwatering. Best advice is to water frequently (if there’s no rain) to keep the top 1/2 inch or so of soil consistently wet, but to avoid deep watering of new seed.
