Why overseed and not just seed the “right amount”? “Overseeding” and “overseeding lawn” does not mean applying more seed than needed. Overseeding means spreading grass seed over troubled spots in an existing lawn. Overtime bare spots may appear in certain areas of a lawn, and weed pressure may start becoming a problem. To combat this you’re going to need to properly aerate the lawn then apply a good amount of grass seed. Overseeding really shines after a proper aeration because the holes caused by aeration allow the seeds to make good contact with the soil. The result is great germination, and healthy, strong blades of grass.
There’s several indicators to look for when trying to figure out if you need overseeding.
