Overseeding Your Lawn

  • To overseed or repair your lawn, follow these steps:

    1. Mow the lawn.
    2. Rake the lawn to loosen up the top of the soil so that the new grass seed can make good contact with the soil. You can also fill in any holes or dips in your lawn with a light application of topsoil at this point.
    3. Apply the grass seed either by hand to the parts that need it the most or with a broadcast spreader to the whole lawn. Sprinkle some topsoil over top of the seeds after this.
    4. Watering daily or twice a day, keep the lawn moist for 2 to 3 weeks so that the top 1/2 inch of the soil does not dry out.
Maintaining Your Seed
  • Keep soil moist through germination to establishment, keep the lawn moist for 2 to 3 weeks so that the top 1/2 inch of the soil does not dry out.
  • Use a rain gauge to ensure you are meeting watering requirements.
  • Refrain from walking on newly seeded areas.

Benefits of Proper Fertilizing

Enhanced Growth and Health:

Fertilizers provide essential nutrients to the soil, promoting robust growth and improving the overall health of your lawn. Nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium present in fertilizers play a crucial role in supporting plant growth, root development, and disease resistance. A well-fertilized lawn exhibits vibrant, lush greenery, thicker grass, and increased resilience against adverse weather conditions.

Improved Soil Quality:

Fertilizers not only nourish the grass but also contribute to enhancing the soil quality. They help replenish depleted nutrients in the soil, ensuring a balanced pH level and fostering a conducive environment for beneficial microorganisms. This improved soil health facilitates better water retention, reduces soil erosion, and enhances the soil’s ability to absorb nutrients, promoting a sustainable and thriving lawn ecosystem.

Weed and Pest Resistance:

Properly fertilized lawns tend to be more resistant to weed infestations and pest invasions. When grass receives adequate nutrition from fertilizers, it grows vigorously, creating a dense turf that naturally suppresses the growth of weeds. Additionally, a healthier lawn is better equipped to withstand attacks from pests and diseases, reducing the need for excessive chemical treatments and ensuring a greener, more enjoyable outdoor space for recreation and relaxation.

Environmentally friendly lawn-maintenance

1. DON'T OVER IRRIGATE​

As a rule of thumb, most conventional natural grass lawns are said to require 1” of irrigation per week, including rain. This is by no means an exact science as it doesn’t take into account factors like temperature, plant genetics or even timing of maintenance.

Water only when it’s most effective to do so. During the warm summer months, watering during daylight hours is the most wasteful thing you can do, as much of the water will be lost to evaporation. Watering in the early morning is the most efficient way to maintain your lawn, as there will be little evaporation loss and less moisture build up, compared with watering at night, which can lead to the development of mushrooms.

Properly balanced fertilizers can enhance soil fertility and structure, resulting in better water retention and nutrient absorption (use Manderley’s 0 phosphorous fertilizer). This in turn supports a healthier ecosystem for plants and microorganisms.

For many people, having a natural grass lawn with even a few dandelions is out of the question. To achieve aesthetic perfection, we spend a great deal of time and effort fighting to remove weeds from our lawns, but are we actually better off in doing so?
If you look at your lawn as less of a decorative space and as more of a functional and, more importantly, living area, weeds aren’t really a problem. In fact, weeds like dandelions and white clover help to improve your soil through aeration, nutrient accumulation and even nitrogen fixing. Redefining our outlook on weeds could go a long way to helping make our lawns more sustainable.

Keep an eye on your lawn and only water when it looks like it needs it. Grass areas will have varying percentages of green cover before reaching dormancy. Ask yourself, does your lawn really need to be 100% green? Can you notice a real difference between 80% and 100%? Even when it isn’t entirely green your lawn is still producing oxygen, cooling your property and promoting a healthier lifestyle. Answering this question could quite possibly save you even more time and water.
