The long, cold winter can be damaging to your Lehigh Valley lawn, leaving you to worry over the bare patches and areas of thin coverage on what was once a beautiful, lush, green grass. The good news is that you can revive your lawn by overseeding it. One common question we usually get from homeowners is, “should I overseed my lawn in the spring?”
Should I overseed my lawn in the spring?
In the Lehigh Valley, the best time to overseed your lawn is fall, and the next best time is in spring. If your lawn is thin, brown, and patchy, overseeding in spring can fill its bare spots and restore its thickness and color, revitalizing it to a lush-green opulent natural beauty. You may be wondering, “why not wait until fall before overseeding?” Yes, you could wait, but there are benefits of overseeding your lawn in spring.
Why overseed my lawn in the spring?
More seed options
As the weather starts to warm up, garden centers and nurseries stock a fresh supply of seeds and grass varieties. If you are looking for something specific for your lawn, you can easily find it in the spring, as there’s a wider selection of seeds to choose from.
Repair winter damage
Winter can take its toll on your Lehigh Valley lawn, causing damage and leaving bare patches that make it unsightly. Rather than wait till fall to repair the damage, overseeding this spring fills in the thin areas and repairs the winter damage.
Enhanced lawn appearance
Overseeding in spring ensures your lawn looks healthy and beautiful, making it inviting for family and friends throughout the summer.
Reduce weed growth
The thin, bare sections of your lawn give room for weeds to take root and spread, leaving your lawn unhealthy and very unsightly. Overseeding in spring ensures new grass fills the thin areas and crowds out the weeds.
Less debris to deal with
When you choose to overseed in the fall season, you will have to contend with leaves, sticks, and other debris that can interfere with the overseeding process. In spring, there’s less debris on the lawn, which gives the grass seeds a better chance to establish their roots and grow.
