Hot summer days can do a number on your Fescue lawn, especially here in Atlanta. Now that the weather is cooling off, it’s time to give your lawn a little TLC to help it recover from the thinning caused by summer heat.

Give us a call ASAP to schedule service and ensure your lawn gets the Fescue seeding and core aeration it needs to stay healthy through the fall and winter. 

Fall Lawn Care in Metro Atlanta

What Is Overseeding and Why Is It Important? 

“Overseeding” simply means to scatter seed over already-established grass to help thicken and fill in any areas that are sparse. If you’ve ever stepped onto a beautiful lawn, you know that the grass is like a dense cushion. In order to achieve that density for a lush lawn, you will need to occasionally overseed your grass with new seed. Maintaining a thick lawn isn’t merely a matter of appearance; it also helps prevent weeds from taking hold. 

While overseeding Fescue is important, you don’t want to go “overboard” on overseeding either. To provide a benefit to your lawn, you need to apply the correct amount of seed. Remember that each grass seed you plant will not simply grow into a blade of grass. Each seed will grow into a bunch or clump of grass. If you scatter seed too densely, each clump of Fescue will have to fight harder for resources, leading some plants to outcompete the others. Another benefit of overseeding is that you don’t have to rip out and replace sections of turf that need additional care.

When to Aerate in Atlanta (And Why)

The period of September to mid-October is prime time to aerate and overseed your yard in metro Atlanta. Aeration is simply a process of punching small holes into your soil, resulting in increased air and water circulation. It’s also a good idea to do it in conjunction with overseeding, because the plugs (or cores) of soil that are removed make room for the new Fescue seed to make direct contact with the soil. 

Aeration also benefits your lawn by reducing thatch buildup and turf compaction that can prevent grass from getting the nutrients it needs to thrive. The more you give your Fescue lawn room to “breathe,” the healthier and more robust it will be. A happy lawn develops deeper, stronger roots, which in turn guards the lawn against potential future hazards like drought, weeds, and insects.

Remember, fall lawn care sets the stage for spring! Set your lawn up for success by booking your Fescue overseeding and core aeration today. You can call us at 770-923-0387 or request an estimate online.

Have used Simply Green for over a year now for weed control & fertilization. Their service & products have helped improve the appearance & health of my grass in this short time. Taffari has been the technician the last few visits and he is great - super knowledgeable & able to answer my questions. On the last visit Taffari had the service manager reach out on a concern and it was addressed & resolved the same day.
