Prepare The Area
There are a couple of key preparation techniques that we use to prepare the surface of your lawn for overseeding. Firstly we mow the lawn extra short. This is so that the new seeds make contact with the soil and receive their fair share of sunlight and water. We will also rake the surface to remove any clippings or debris that may remain before the overseeding process. This will also loosen and expose the soil to receive the seeds. From summer to winter, no matter the job, we can assure you we will have your lawn looking its best at to time whatsoever.
It is essential to ensure that your newly seeded lawn is constantly provided with the water it needs. It needs constant moisture. For the first four days, it is essential to provide the surface with at least two light sprinklings every day. Once we reach day five, it is important to then heavily water the area every other day to ensure the seeds receive the moisture they need to grow. dThis crucial process needs to be followed carefully within the first week to promote strong and healthy root growth. Now that you have seen that we know what we are talking about, its time you picked up the phone and got a move on.
