Tips from Toby Fall Lawn Options
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. Find out if you need to seed, or if simple fertilization will do the trick. It can save you a lot of time and money.

In just a couple of weeks a lot of us will run out and buy some grass seed to overseed the lawn. Believe it or not - you could be doing more harm than good. Most of us don't need to do Fall overseeding. Fertilizing the healthy grass you already have will help the grass tiller and rhyzome so it will thicken and fill in those bare spots naturally. Over the next two weeks we'll help you decide if adding more seed to your lawn is necessary, how to properly apply grass seed and much more.

This Fall 3 step fertilization process is one of the most important things you can do for your lawn all year. We also show you how to safely get rid of those pesky weeds in newly seeded areas, what tillering and rhizoming means and how it is happening right now and much more!
Those little weeds popping up from the late Summer heat will be the big weeds causing you problems next Spring. Now is the time to take care of them. We show you the right way to control weeds. If you have seeded your lawn, avoid this tip altogether. You do not want to spray weeds while new lawn seed is down or germinating. You can control those weeds after the new grass is strong enough to withstand chemical applications. We'll help you deal with those issues at a later date.
