Sometimes a lawn, especially a neglected lawn, will require more than just fertilization. You might want to consider lawn renovation if you notice 20% of your lawn is dead or has very thin growth. The cause may be low soil fertility, drought, insect damage, disease, moderate soil compaction, even poor mowing techniques can lead to these conditions.
For those situations we can help renovate a tired lawn by adding new seed that will help to quickly fill in bare spots.
Our slice seeding option actually plants turfgrass seeds in your lawn at the right depth to insure proper germination and development. It is important that the new seed be an appropriate turfgrass seed that won’t cause unsightly problems in a few years. Some cool-season grass types are classified as being either bunching grasses or spreading. While both types of grasses make ideal lawns, it is important not to combine the two or you’ll get unpredictable results.
Slice seeding is an optional service and is best done usually in late summer when growing conditions are usually going into an ideal time for new growth. Although we take every precaution to insure that your newly renovated lawn is properly planted, it does require some help from the homeowner to make sure that the new seed gets just enough moisture during that first month of growth and development.
