Whether you’re planting new grass or reseeding your existing lawn, the wrong techniques can derail your growing efforts. Consider these seeding tips to make sure you’re taking the proper steps to achieve a healthy, plush lawn.
Lawn seeding is not just for patchy or thin grass, but is a great way to choke out crabgrass and other weeds. Reseeding an entire lawn is easiest to finish in the fall when these weeds go into dormancy and the grass seed will have a chance to germinate before it also becomes dormant. A spring seeding is usually just for treating small areas that lack any new grass sprouts.
