How to Overseed a Lawn

Overseeding a lawn is easy and the perfect way to thicken your lawn and make it greener! Simply follow the steps below to see how to overseed your lawn the right way with Jonathan Green:

1. Rake the ground thoroughly to remove any thatch, debris, and dead leaves. This step is especially important because it ensures that your grass seed makes good contact with the soil.

2. Spread the seed. We recommend applying seed with a spreader so that you can apply it in one even pattern across your lawn.

3. Water the newly planted grass seed. If the seeds start to germinate and dry out, they will not grow. Keeping the seedbed moist until all of the grass seed germinates (typically within 28 days from planting) is imperative to growing a beautiful lawn.
