What does our overseeding process look like?

Overseeding is a straightforward way to fill in any bare spots on your lawn without having to tear up your turf or your soil. In order to overseed your lawn, our team will plant new grass across your existing turf. We do this by spreading our premium mix of cool-season grass seeds over your entire property. We use a seed spreader to make sure that all the grass seeds are spread evenly across your lawn. These seeds will grow and fill in any bare or patchy areas of your lawn, giving you a dense and lush lawn.

We use a blend of cool-season grass seeds and starter fertilizer for the best results.

The most common grass type found here in Iowa is cool-season grass. We use a perfectly crafted blend of cool-season seed types; 70% of the blend is Kentucky bluegrass and 30% of the blend is ryegrass. Using both grass types will result in strong, resilient, emerald-green grass. After laying the seeds, we'll apply a starter fertilizer to your lawn to give the seedlings a jumpstart. With starter fertilizer and frequent watering, your new seeds will have everything they need!

We pair our overseeding service with aeration for the best results.

At A+ Lawn & Landscape, we only offer our overseeding service directly after core aeration. This is because pairing overseeding with aeration offers many benefits for your lawn. During our aeration service, we use an aerator machine to remove small cores of soil with the goal of loosening up compacted soil. If you overseed your lawn directly after aerating it, the new grass seeds that are spread over your property will fall into the small holes left behind during aeration. This gives your new grass seeds a better chance of successfully germinating and establishing root systems. Aeration can also remove thatch buildup which can help your new grass seeds germinate as well. All in all, following an aeration treatment with overseeding is a lot more beneficial for your lawn than just overseeding.

We recommend scheduling our overseeding service in the early fall because it provides the perfect environment for your grass seeds to successfully take root.
