There are many good reasons to consider overseeding your lawn. Overseeding using a cool-season grass can be a solution to keep a green lawn during the colder months. Why not try this as solution this coming winter!
Overseeding refers to the act of adding turf grass seeds on an existing turf lawn. It can give very good results, granted that you follow a few simple rules. You will find on this page a few overseeding rules of thumb.
The Right Seeds for Your Conditions
Two of the most important factors if you want your overseeding efforts to be successful are sun and water. Climate is also an important factor, but chances are that all the nurseries and hardware stores in your location sell seeds that are well adapted to your climate. But if you live in Hawaii and order grass seeds form a nursery located in Alberta, Canada, then you might just receive cool season grass seeds, while what you need is warm season grass seeds.
So how do you choose grass seeds that are well adapted to your conditions? Well, the first thing to know is that grass seeds are usually sold as mixes, so in a single bag, you may very well get five different seed varieties. You should read what’s written on the bag and look for the names of those varieties you know are well adapted to your conditions.
