Give yourself a green lawn all year round with over-seeding.
Keeping up a green lawn throughout the year can feel impossible. After all, each type of grass has its ideal growing season and times of year where it will go dormant. So you’re forced to go through seasons when your yard will look less than perfect, right? Wrong! Over-seeding gives you a way to ensure your yard looks thick and green every month of the year.
Over-seeding can also help your yard better weather tough conditions. Many new grasses are more resistant to disease, wear, shade, and drought. When you over-seed, you add hardiness to your grass that can ultimately result in it requiring less maintenance work.
There are a few types of summer seeds we use at SGV Gardener to help your yard stay stunning all year:
- Bermuda. Bermuda grass thrives in warm weather and goes dormant in the winter. If you notice your yard looking less than ideal in the summer, over-seeding with Bermuda can give you a lush lawn through the hotter months. It germinates in the warm season, so over-seeding with it now is ideal.
- TIFF Green/Tall Turf. If you’re looking for a thick, luxuriant stretch of grass, tall turf is a fantastic over-seed option. It grows well in the shade, requiring just three to four hours of sun a day. Our over-seeding application usually includes a thin layer of seed cover/compost. This is dark green, low growing grass thrives in the winter. For instance, Marathon is made up of a proprietary blend of seeds specially designed to grow well in a Southern California climate. It’s a very dense grass that doesn’t grow as quickly as many other grasses, which means less moving for you and less thatch buildup. This type of overseed is very affordable.
If you’d like more information about how over-seeding can give you a lawn that will be the envy of all your neighbors year round, contact SGV Gardener. Our team of lawn care professionals will assess your current lawn conditions – from the type of grass you currently have to its sun exposure – and over-seed with the best grass for your unique conditions. We can also install an irrigation system on an automatic timer along with your over-seed. This ensures that your new grass gets the water it needs to take root and look lush throughout the year without you ever needing to think about it.
We won’t just overseed and leave you with fingers crossed that your yard grows well, either. After we over-seed, we’ll come back for a weekly visit for four consecutive weeks to check on the growth progress and adjust your irrigation schedule. New over-seed is thirsty and needs moisture for the seeds to germinate and take root. With our visitations, we ensure your grass gets the water it needs to get established but you’re not left wasting water (and money!) on overwatering.
