Hand up if you have always wanted a lawn like a picture above? (I’ll take the country house, too :)) I know for sure I have… I always get brown spots and if I try and re-seed my lawn it always ends up dying or growing funny and patchy. I know summer is not the ideal season to plant the new grass but get the knowledge now and have a lush, green grass
sooner than you may think.
The optimal time to plant grass seed is spring and fall, the cooler temperatures and rains help the seeds get a good footing and the cooler temperatures help keep crabgrass at bay so your seeds have a better time at rooting. All that being said, you can still plant your grass now. You will just have to make sure you keep the sol moist and watered.
Overseeding is one of the most important tasks involved in growing a healthy, lush lawn. While fertilizing your lawn is important, grass plants slow down their rates of reproduction after a few years. Over time, lawns that have not been overseeded will grow thin and unhealthy, making it much easier for weeds to overtake the lawn. Overseeding can be time-consuming if you have a large lawn, but it is not difficult, and the results are well worth it the effort. This article explains how to overseed a lawn.
