Overseeding Regularly Can Introduce Improved Lawn Genetics and Create a Thick, Lush Lawn
Lawn Seed Improvements Can Build a Lawn That is More Resilient to Disease, Insects & Drought.
No property owner wants their lawn to be patchy, thin, and lifeless. Our team at Zing Services offers an overseeding service that will solve that problem by filling in bare patches on your lawn.
To overseed your lawn, our team uses a blend of cool-season grass seeds. We offer this service in the fall and pair it with our core aeration service. We strongly recommend that you add on our starter fertilizer treatment to ensure the best results.
We service areas in the Treasure Valley, including Middleton, Star, Eagle, Meridian, Nampa and nearby cities in Idaho.
We use a mix of cool-season grass seeds to overseed your lawn.
Cool-season grasses are the dominant grass type here in Idaho. They thrive in our climate and, because of that, our team uses cool-season grass seeds for our overseeding service. More specifically, we utilize a premium blend of 60% ryegrass and 40% Kentucky bluegrass seeds to overseed your lawn.
Ryegrass is a fine-bladed grass that is ideal for yards that receive a lot of foot or pet traffic. It also tends to germinate fairly quickly compared to other grass types.
Kentucky bluegrass also holds up well on high-traffic lawns and tends to spread rapidly, which means you'll have a full lawn in no time.
By overseeding with a grass type that thrives in this area, your new seedlings will have a much better chance at successfully germinating and establishing strong root systems.
When do we offer our overseeding service?
We can overseed either in the spring or fall and is ideal when coupled with a lawn core areation. Fall provides a great season for overseeding because this time of year provides new seeds with an environment that promotes root system development and healthy growth. Daytime temperatures are still warm enough to encourage grass growth while the temperature of your soil is cool and ideal for root development and won't dry out as easily. We can visit with you about what time of year would be best for your overseeding service.
We also offer our overseeding service in conjunction with our core aeration service. This is because pairing overseeding with core aeration will provide much better results than if you just scheduled overseeding on its own.
We aerate your lawn using an aerator machine to remove small cores of soil with the goal of reducing compaction. Our machine drops seeds at the same time, offering both services with less equipment traffic on your lawn. This allows the new grass seeds to fall into the small holes from the aeration. This gives the seeds a better chance of successfully germinating.
To maintain the density of your lawn, we recommend that you schedule our overseeding service once a year.
For the best results, add on our starter fertilizer treatment.
When you schedule our overseeding service, you have the option of adding our starter fertilizer treatment to the service. Starter fertilizers have a higher concentration of phosphorus than typical fertilizers do. The role of phosphorus in fertilizer is to help your grass use and store energy.
Following an overseeding service with a starter fertilizer treatment puts the new lawn seed on the right track towards quick germination, successful root establishment, and healthy growth.
