Unlike Bermuda and Zoysia, which are self-spreading warm-season grasses, Fescue is a cool-season grass that must be overseeded in the fall.
What is Overseeding?
Your Fescue may be thinning in areas after a hot Georgia summer. Overseeding is applying seeds to your current grass to fill in barren places and assist your grass in growing thicker and lusher all around. Overseeding works best when it is preceded by aeration.
What Aeration Can Do For Your Lawn?
- Removes soil plugs to allow essential water, nutrients, and air to reach the roots.
- Improves water and fertilizer intake by reducing soil compaction.
- Enhances root structure
- Increases heat and drought resistance
- Increases the thickness and resilience of lawns
What Does Overseeding Do For Your Lawn?
- Fills in bare spots.
- Seeds are sown over the grass to create a thicker, more lush lawn.
Why Does Your Fescue Lawn Require Both?
Aeration prepares your lawn for overseeding by providing a safe location for the seeds to germinate and enhances your grass’s growth potential by creating a stronger, deeper root system.
