If you find your lawn is thin, patchy, and struggling, overseeding it may be the solution. Overseeding is a great way to thicken up your turf, but you need to make sure you schedule this service at the right time to ensure it will produce the best results possible. Fall in South Dakota is the perfect time of year to schedule an overseeding service because the soil temperatures will be ideal for seed growth and they'll have enough time to establish before winter. What's more, a dense lawn will be better equipped to crowd out weeds, so you won't have to deal with as many in the following seasons!

Overseeding should be scheduled in the fall because the soil temperatures are ideal for seed growth!

One reason why fall is the best season to overseed your lawn is because the soil temperature will be just right for the seeds to grow. The soil temperature in the fall should be between 65-75 degrees Fahrenheit, which is the optimal range for seed growth. When you schedule an overseeding service in the fall, you can rest easy knowing that the seeds will have the perfect soil conditions to germinate successfully!

Overseeding in the spring or summer is a bad idea because the high temperatures can prevent the seeds from growing successfully.

Fall is the best season to overseed your lawn because it will have enough time to establish before winter.

Another reason why overseeding your lawn in the fall is a good idea is because the seeds will have enough time to establish themselves before winter comes. Because winter can take a heavy toll on your lawn, you'll need to make sure that your grass is strong enough to endure the freezing weather. As long as you schedule this service early enough in the fall, your grass seeds should have enough time to establish their roots in the soil and will be able to make it through the upcoming winter.

Overseeding will give you a dense lawn that will be better equipped to crowd out weeds.

When you overseed in the fall, you'll be filling your lawn with new grass growth. This means you'll have a much denser lawn than before, which is exactly what you want! A dense lawn is not only aesthetically pleasing but also healthier because it has better resistance to stressors like diseases and insect infestations. What's more, a denser lawn will also help fight off pesky weeds that try to take over during the fall, winter, and spring. Weeds thrive in thinning lawns, but they don't do well in dense ones. With fewer weeds taking over your lawn, your grass will have better access to the nutrients and resources it needs to thrive!

If you've noticed that your lawn is looking thin and patchy, we can fix that for you via our overseeding service. At The Yard Barbers, we offer this service in the fall because it's the best season for the seeds to germinate and flourish. We use a cool-season seed mixture that contains tall fescue and Kentucky bluegrass seeds, as these grass types thrive in our area. What's more, we only offer this service when paired with aeration because the holes created during the aeration process will give the seeds the perfect place to fall into and germinate.

We offer our overseeding service to residential and commercial properties, as well as HOAs, in Sioux Falls, SD, and surrounding areas like Harrisburg and Tea. Call us at (605) 370-5084 today to schedule our overseeding service and give your lawn a boost this fall!
