Fall Aeration and Overseeding Services in Columbia
Springtime is often thought to be the best time for planting. Everybody rushes to get their gardens planted for Memorial Day. However, there is still plenty to do in fall as well. Summer can be rough on our lawns with intense heat, drought, insect and disease pressure, as well as the fact that we use our lawns a lot more during the summer months. All of that traffic and stress can take its toll on the health of the yard.
Why you should use our services in fall
Fall is the perfect time for planting or overseeding a lawn. The warm days and cool nights create an optimal growing environment for the blends of grasses that we use in our area. Crabgrass and weeds are far less of an issue as we get further into autumn.
This allows new seedlings to flourish without pressure from other invasive species. We consider the ideal seeding window to be anywhere between mid-August and mid-September. This is late enough to avoid the issues described above but early enough to allow for adequate germination before the cold of winter settles in.
Try our services and protect your lawn
All cool season grass should be overseeded each fall to keep it thick and lush. Unlike warm season grass, fescue, rye and bluegrass don’t spread. Seeding it each fall will insure that your shade grass stays nice and thick.
Many areas that we service are in a transitional zone, which means that it’s really too hot for the shade grass. It will look nice in the spring, but when the heat of summer hits it, some of it will die back, which makes fall overseeding that much more important.
Currently, we offer Fall Aeration and Overseeding in Tulsa, Oklahoma; Forth Smith and Springdale, Arkansas; Memphis, Tennessee; Huntsville, Alabama; and Greenville, South Carolina areas. If you have shade grass in your lawn, and don’t want to do the fall overseeding yourself, please call us for a free estimate. We usually do overseedings in mid to late September.
We will select the best type of seed for your area, mechanically aerate your shade areas, and seed those areas. The mechanical aeration helps incorporate the seed into the soil.
