Overseeding in & Around Escanaba, Marquette, & Iron Mountain, MI
Our overseeding service will help to fill in your patchy turf.
Bare patches on your lawn can be quite an eyesore and a pain to try to fill in on your own. Here at Turf Badger, we offer an overseeding service that is designed to fill in bare patches on your property and thicken up your lawn. We provide this service to the property owners in Escanaba, Marquette, Iron Mountain, and surrounding communities in Michigan. Our team uses a premium blend of cool-season grass seeds for our overseeding service. We overseed in the fall so your new grass seeds have a great chance at successfully taking root before the winter. We also pair our overseeding service with our core aeration service for the best results.
We use a mix of Kentucky bluegrass and fescue to overseed your lawn.
The most common type of grass planted here in Michigan is cool-season grass. As the name suggests, cool-season grasses, such as Kentucky bluegrass and fescue, tend to thrive in the cooler temperatures of the spring and fall; this grass type grows the most successfully in temperatures between 60 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Because cool-season grasses are so common in Michigan, our team uses a premium blend of Kentucky bluegrass and fescue grass seeds to overseed your lawn. By overseeding with a grass type that is known to grow successfully in this area, your new grass seeds will have a better chance of taking root and growing quickly.
What time of year do we offer our overseeding service?
While many lawn care companies overseed in the summer, the weather conditions during that time of year are much too hot for your new seedlings and will not yield the best results. At Turf Badger, we offer our overseeding service in the fall because the fall season provides your new grass seeds with the optimal environment for root development and growth. This is due to the fact that daytime temperatures in the fall are still warm enough to encourage grass growth while nighttime temperatures cool down enough to give your seedlings a break from the warmth. Soil temperatures during the fall are also cool, which is ideal for your grass seeds and a crucial part of root development.
To keep your lawn looking dense and lush, we recommend scheduling our overseeding service once a year.
To ensure the best results, we pair overseeding with core aeration.
We offer our overseeding service in conjunction with our core aeration service to ensure that you receive the best results possible. Pairing overseeding with core aeration is much more beneficial for your lawn than just overseeding your lawn by itself. When we aerate your lawn, we use an aerator machine to remove small plugs of soil in order to reduce compaction; this leaves behind small holes where these soil plugs were removed. If you spread grass seed over your lawn right after aerating it, the seeds will fall into those small holes. This gives your new grass seeds a much better chance at successfully germinating and establishing root systems.
