Reseeding your lawn can be done by you or by us. The type of seeding that can be done varies with the turf situation. Aeration with overseeding, slit seeding, or adding topsoil, seed and straw are some of the approaches we take to lawn repair.
Proper Watering for Lawn Repair
Watering is probably the most important part of the seeding process. Seeds need regular watering in order to germinate. Young grass plants need regular watering because their roots are immature and will dry up quickly during dry spells.
When planing new grass seed, we recommend at least a full month of watering for the best results.
New seed grass needs four weeks to get established after germination before you should mow it for the first time. Wait until new grass is at least 5 inches tall before mowing because the grass blades are too tender and easy to damage with the mower blades. Remember to keep your grass long so you are only taking off a small amount.
