What is Overseeding and When Should I Do It?

Featured Image


Overseeding is the process of adding grass seed to an existing lawn to improve its density, colour, and overall health. This is done by spreading grass seed evenly across your lawn and ensuring that it is properly watered and fertilized. Overseeding is typically performed with a core aeration to ensure seed-soil contact and it is done in the spring or fall.

The cooler temperatures are an ideal time to overseed because the soil is still warm, which helps to promote seed germination. Additionally, the cooler temperatures and increased moisture creates ideal growing conditions for new grass.

How Long Does it Take for Grass Seed to Germinate After Overseeding?

The length of time it takes for grass seed to germinate after overseeding depends on several factors, including the type of grass seed, the soil temperature, and the amount of moisture in the soil. In general, most grass seed will germinate within 7-21 days after it has been overseeded.

To ensure that your grass seed germinates as quickly and effectively as possible, it's important to keep the soil moist during the germination period. This can be done by watering your lawn daily. Be sure to do a light watering for the seed and do not flood it. Remember, if it dries, it dies.

Once the grass seed has germinated, it will still take several weeks for the new grass to become established and develop deep roots. During this time, it's important to continue watering your lawn regularly and to avoid mowing the new grass until it has reached a height of at least 2.5-3 inches.
