Facts about Overseeding
Overseeding is a process where grass seed is spread over an existing lawn. Overseeding is an easy, cost effective way to help fill in bare spots created by dogs, or the removal of a small structure such as a fire pit. It can also help introduce more robust grass varieties which help improve the density of your lawn and give it healthier colours.
How do we Overseed?
Our technicians arrive on site with wheeled lawn spreaders that are loaded up with grass seed and then simple pushed from one side to the other. Using a lawn spreader guarantees a fine distribution of grass seed across a wide surface area so growth comes in even instead of patchy. If there is a dead zone, our technicians will insure that area receives special attention.
Our use of spreaders also helps distribute new and more stronger grass species across your lawn. More robust varieties add colour to your lawn, and offer additional benefits such as water retention, weed resistance, and reduced soil compaction.
The ease and speed with which overseeding can be accomplished makes it a no brainer. Spreading new seed with new variants grass species boosts lawn health, and distributes seed in a balanced way. Contact us, and let us help you make your lawn the best it can be.

Since overseeding is a planting practice, it needs to be done in the first few weeks of the growing season. This way seeds receive plenty of water to allow themselves time to grow. Coupled with a power raking treatment, your lawn will grow strong and lush. Regardless of time of year, it’s never too early to plan ahead for the following season.
