One of the most common issues that concern our customers in the spring is once the snow melts; the lawn appears to be brown and thin. The Ottawa area’s harsh winter weather often wreaks havoc on our lawns. Older grass plants die off, rodents such as voles make paths on the lawn under the snow and foot and pet traffic over the snow damages the turf below.
Overseeding is a great way to recover from winter. It will green up your lawn, thicken the turf and introduce new varieties of grass to your existing turf to help crowd out weeds. Our licensed technicians aerate the lawn to break up the thatch and compaction to prepare for excellent seed-soil contact. The seed is then applied using a broadcast spreader at rates above the manufacturer’s recom- mended rates.
