Fall lawn overseeding can help thicken and strengthen your grass to improve its health and appearance.
The summer months in the Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina area can be quite brutal. Between scorching temperatures and sunshine throughout much of the day for days on end, the weather can make it hard to get outdoors. But your landscaping is constantly exposed to these harsh climate conditions, and some of the plants may show signs that they’re not as healthy as they once were. Cutting the grass too short can expose the roots, causing them to burn when it’s hot outside. Insufficient water can also lead to lawn problems, as the grass will go into drought stress mode as it tries to stay alive.
Because of the soil type here in Fuquay-Varina, most of the turf we have here is warm season, such as Bermuda, centipede, or zoysia grass. These types of grass are typically aerated in the spring or summertime. However, if you have fescue grass or another kind of cool weather lawn, you may find that your grass is looking a little less lush than usual in the summer.
If you’ve noticed that the grass on your property could use some attention, our team at NC Lawn Care can provide the care needed. For cool weather types of grass, we often recommend fall lawn overseeding after the harsh summer ends. Lawn overseeding is a process that involves planting additional grass seed in an existing lawn. It is an excellent alternative to removing and replacing sod. Fall lawn overseeding can help thicken and strengthen your grass to improve its health and appearance.
When performing fall lawn overseeding, we typically start the process near or just after the end of the summer season. Our experienced technicians can answer any questions you have about the process and how to care for your newly seeded lawn after we finish the job. Contact us to request an estimate.
