Read our guide to learn why you should over-seed if you live in Colorado or Michigan, and contact our team for excellent service!

If you want your lawn to stay lively and luscious for a lifetime, it's important to over-seed every once in a while. Over-seeding is the process of planting new grass seed directly into existing turf without tearing up the turf or underlying soil. Over-seeding is beneficial for virtually every grass type in virtually any climate, but is best done in during temperatures in the 70 degrees Fahrenheit to 90 degrees Fahrenheit range when the soil itself is around 70 degrees Fahrenheit at a depth of 1-inch. In this guide, our lawn experts here at Fit Turf outline five reasons why over-seeding is a must for Colorado and Michigan lawns.

  1. Over-Seeding Synthesizes New Growth

The addition of new grass seed into your existing lawn will synthesize the growth of new grass, adding thickness and color to your lawn over time.

  1. Over-Seeding Corrects Existing Lawn Damage

Have brown spots or dirt patches? Over-seeding can help. Be sure to prep your lawn beforehand with soil amendments and targeted aeration.

  1. Over-Seeding Protects Against New Lawn Damage

The thickness and strength that over-seeding can add to your lawn will help protect it against new damages caused by weather and other factors. This is especially pertinent in regions such as Colorado and Michigan, where the winters can be long and harsh.

  1. Over-Seeding is Safe

While fertilization is often necessary after over-seeding, over-seeding itself is not harmful for your lawn, pets or other organisms in your yard. This makes it an attractive method of lawn maintenance for those looking to minimize chemical usage in their lawn care.

  1. Over-Seeding Saves Time and Money

Have you ever had to rip out existing sod and place new layers on your property? It's a pain — and if you get a professional to do it, it's costly. One of the best ways to prevent hassle and high costs in the lawn care department is to over-seed your lawn periodically. This will keep your lawn strong and healthy without the hefty price tag. Plus, over-seeding takes about as much time a mowing the lawn does, so no matter who does it, you can be sure that the job will get done in no time at all.
