Overseeding & Aerating Your Lawn-
Why Do Both?

 

Aerating followed by overseeding your lawn has many benefits & helps create a beautiful lawn with healthy grass. Anchorage Lawn Services, Alaska Premier Services

What is Overseeding? 

Overseeding is sowing seed into your existing lawn without having to re-seed the entire lawn, and is much less expensive. If you have proper drainage, but have thin or weak spots its time to take action.

What is Aeration?

Core Aeration is the process of taking out deep plugs of soil using a machine called a “Core Aerator”.  This gives the soil “room to breathe”.  Soil can become hard and compacted over time which negatively affects how nutrients and water are absorbed by the grass roots.

What Time of Year Should I Overseed My Lawn?

For cool season grasses such as those in Anchorage:  Summer to fall.

 Why Overseed After Aerating?

This is the perfect time! Plugs of dirt are left on top of your lawn immediately after your lawn is aerated. The holes from aerating are 4 to 6 inches deep & make for the perfect environment for new seed growth.  In addition to the grass seed germinating in these holes, they will also germinate directly on the dirt cores, which then break down over the next week+.  You should ultimately over seed within a day of aeration while the holes are open and before cores begin to break down.

 How often do I water after Overseeding?

Water thoroughly daily for 2 to 3 weeks until grass seedlings are at least 2 inches tall. Then every two days thereafter, if weather is dry.
