Overseeding is the planting of grass seed directly into existing turf, freshly aerated turf, or freshly sliced turf. It’s an easy way to fill in bare spots, improve the density of turf, and enhance your lawns colors.
Slit seed is the best method for overseeding established turf. Slit seeding will cut through the thatch layer and open up a 1/4″ slit in the soil, allowing the seed to drop in and cover back up. This gives more seed to soil contact, increasing germination rate and better stand on new grass.
