What is Slit Seeding?
Overseeding is the planting of grass seed directly into existing turf, without tearing up the turf, or the soil. A machine slices the soil, depositing seed to the proper depth for germination as it slices. It’s an efficient way to fill in bare spots, improve the density of turf, establish improved grass varieties and enhance your lawn’s color.
Many older lawns were established with common type turf grasses not suited for the needs of today’s homeowner. They’re often more disease and insect prone, requiring more fertilizer and water.
Overseeding newer turfgrass varieties into an older lawn can help it better withstand disease, insects and drought. The investment in overseeding pays off by reducing the amount of fertilizer, water and pesticides required.
If your lawn looks old, or is worn out, it may be a perfect candidate for overseeding.
