Tips from Toby – Fall Lawn Program
This is the time of year when many of us "overseed". From advertisements to big seed sales, it's what we're told to do. The truth is - most of us don't need to put down seed at all, we just need to feed the grass that is already there. Proper fertilization, watering and the cooler weather will do the rest. Grass thickens (tillers and rhyzomes) all on its own. We just need to give it a Fall boost to get there. In this week's tip we discuss whether you need to seed at all, how to properly apply seed and the equipment to get the job done right.
