Red Deer Overseeding

In Red Deer, we are happy to offer complimentary seeding bags for our customers in the St. Bernard and Great Dane package. It’s a great complimentary service to those packages and does a great job to help thicken up your lawn. When your lawn is thick and healthy, that comes with many benefits. First off, it helps to reduce weed growth throughout the lawn since a thick lawn helps choke out weeds. Second, it’s a compound effect, when you mow a lush thick lawn, it will recirculate nutrients more often. Lastly, it looks aesthetically pleasing and you can feel proud of the lawn you created.

With the Red Deer climate, the absolute best time to seed your lawn is in the spring and the fall. Those are the two growing season there, if you try to grow seed in the summer it will have a hard time growing.

How we do it

For the seed to best germinate, it’s very important to make sure that you get the seed to soil contact. If the seed simply lies on top of the lawn, it will blow away with wind after a few hours. You have three choices to help the seed embed to the soil. The first is to aerate beforehand, when the seed gets spread throughout it will migrate into the aeration cores creating the seed to soil contact. The second is to apply top soil from Home Depot or Lowe’s on top of the grass seed. The third option is to hand rake or power rake until you see the soil and place the seed on top of that. The first two are the two best and easiest options, but they are all effective in getting the seed to germinate.

The type of seed we use for Red Deer lawns is a mix of three grass types: Kentucky blugrass, Red fescue and Ryegrass. It’s important to note that you should be very cautious of the brand name grass seeds as they don’t take geographic area into location (Florida grass is completely different then Red Deer grass). So it’s important that the lawn seed is high quality and that it blends into the lawn.

FAQ

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.
