Spring Overseeding: 4 Important Questions

2 Min

Spring is all about new beginnings, both on the lawns and off. From blooming flowers to budding seeds, spring is a period of growth and refinement, bringing joy and a splash of colour to properties across the Ottawa region from late March to June. By overseeding in spring, your lawn gets a youthful upgrade and you get a jolt of youthful energy as you watch it grow and thrive before your very eyes. Younger plants can spread and fill in where the older plants are stretched thin, the circle of life in motion.
