We provide overseeding for properties in Alton, Godfrey, Edwardsville, and nearby IL areas.
Our crew will overseed your lawn in the fall using cool-season grass seeds to rejuvenate your thinning turf.
Who doesn't want a lush lawn that stands out among its peers? If your lawn is looking thin and dull, overseeding is an effective way to rejuvenate it. We offer overseeding in the fall using cool-season grass seeds that will eventually fill in your yard's bare or thin spots with healthy and competitive grass. Our overseeding service is available as an add-on to our fall core aeration service since the grass seeds have a better chance of germinating after aeration opens up your soil to absorb essential nutrients.
We provide our overseeding service for properties in Alton, Godfrey, Edwardsville, Glen Carbon, Maryville, IL, and nearby communities. After we overseed your lawn, our skilled crew will give you a watering schedule so you can help the grass seeds receive enough hydration to thrive.
When You Should Schedule Our Overseeding Service
Most lawns in Illinois have cool-season grass types that thrive in the cooler weather. Our trained team understands this very well, which is why you can schedule our overseeding service in the fall when the conditions are ideal for the grass seeds. While a better part of the spring offers these conditions, sowing the new grass seeds in the fall's cooler temperatures will yield better results.
We offer overseeding as an add-on to our fall core aeration service. When you pair these services, aeration opens up the soil to give the roots of your grass better access to essential nutrients and creates ideal conditions for grass seeds to make good soil contact. Aerating and overseeding your lawn in the fall will also help prepare it for the winter stress and position it to rebound in the spring.
Schedule our lawn aeration and overseeding services annually to ensure your lawn is constantly looking and feeling great!
What type of seeds do we use when overseeding your lawn?
At Element Turf & Outdoor Solutions, LLC, we will overseed your lawn in the fall with cool-season grass seed types. Because our team wants to give your lawn exceptional color and resiliency to the summer heat, we use cool-season grasses common in our area, including:
- Tall fescue
- Hard fescue
- Perennial ryegrass
- Kentucky bluegrass
Of these three choices, tall fescue and Kentucky bluegrass stand out because of their unmatched charm once they have fully developed. They are also more tolerant of heat and drought conditions, so you can rest assured that your turf will remain stunning even in summer when most cool-season lawns are stressed.
Follow a Watering Regimen After Overseeding
A good watering regimen will go a long way in ensuring your grass is happy. When we're done overseeding your lawn, our professionals will give you a watering schedule before they leave your property. It will help you ensure your new seeds have what they need to turn into thick, healthy grass. The general rule of thumb when watering your overseeded lawn is to water frequently for about a week. After your seeds germinate, you can slow down your watering until you get back to your regular watering schedule.
Aside from watering, we recommend that you avoid walking on your freshly overseeded lawn to prevent damaging the grass seeds.
