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 ensure that your shade grass stays nice and thick.
Many areas that we service are in a transitional zone, which means that it’s too hot for these shade grass types. 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!
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 properly. The mechanical aeration helps incorporate the seed into the soil. Learn more about our aeration services here.
