Calgary Overseeding 

One of the biggest benefits of a thick lawn is the all natural defense it creates against weeds. Every drop of water that goes on your lawn is competed for either by grass or weeds. The thicker your grass, the less chance a weed can steal the nutrients and flourish. We recommend seeding your lawn not only to keep it healthy and rejuvenated, but also to fight back head on with the weeds and set up your lawn to require the least amount of herbicide as possible in order to stay weed free and gorgeous!

Our lawns are living organisms. Like any organic matter there are life cycles to follow. Grass starts from seed, grows into healthy blades, lives for several seasons, multiplies, spreads, and eventually dies. Your lawn is consistently aging, which is why it’s critical to add new life to it often. Here at Yard Dawgs, we know this climate well and how to apply grass seed in Calgary. Overseeding applications can restore your lawn. We spread the seed throughout your lawn as well as to dry and bare areas. We only use the highest quality seeds for our valued customers; within a few weeks, your dry spots and bare areas will flourish with life. After our seeding services we provide homeowners with “next steps” to ensure they can work with us to maximize the success of the lawn. We share instruction on how to properly water, mow, and further care for your lawn. Your DIY help along with our professional services is a recipe for the best lawn you’ve ever had.

How we do it

We’ve done enormous amounts of research to determine When to apply the seed, Which blend of seed has the greatest chance of establishing, and How to apply it to maximize germination. We’ve created a strong process that shows the Yard Dawgs difference when looking at lawn seeding in Calgary. A successful lawn seeding comes from starting with the best seed, applying it properly and ensuring it has the nutrients to grow. Our Seed is a custom blend unique to Yard Dawgs. It contains primarily Kentucky Blue Grass but is also mixed with some Fiesta Rye Grass and Red Fescue. We invest in the best seed that has technology to work well with Calgary’s weather, maximize water absorption, and resist drought and disease.

We only do overseeding in Calgary after an aeration service as been performed. Throwing down great grass seed on top of a non-aerated lawn is a complete waste because the seed must be embedded within soil to germinate. With our St. Bernard and Great Dane package, we include up to 40 sqft worth of additional soil coverage with our overseeding to ensure your patchy areas are well seeded and set up for success. To seed your lawn properly, it must be aerated first. Here’s a quick video showing how the two services work well together!

Depending where we are in the season grass will begin growing from the seeds in 2-3 weeks. You can expect a 50 - 90% germination with our seed.

You want the soil of the newly seeded area to stay moist every day. To ensure the top inch of the lawn is moist, you should water the area with a sprinkler for 30 minutes, twice daily (once in the morning, once at night) until the lawn has grown enough to be mowed for the first time. If a heat wave occurs during this time, increase the watering to 3-4 times per day to ensure the soil stays moist during the extreme heat.

Until the grass has grown long enough to be mowed for the first time.

If we do an aeration and overseed that yields poor growth results, we will first check all of the factors:

- How often were you watering?
- Did any pets, children, or wild life disrupt the physical conditions of the seed?
- Is there a deeper problem at hand, such has poor soil conditions or extreme weather?

We will work with you to find the solution and if needed we will seed and soil the area again free of charge. We want your lawn to achieve great success with our programs and will stick through it with you.


The Benefits of Overseeding

  • Thicker turf to choke out weeds and enhance beauty
  • Rejuvenation from the soil up for a beautiful appearance
  • Less watering required as young grass requires less than old
  • Increased resistance to environmental factors
  • A denser lawn is less attractive to wild rodents and other pests
